Where Jugglers Gather

Posted April 9th, 2014


Did you know there was a gathering place for jugglers? Yes, it’s true, and it’s not a secret society, and they don’t murder folks in their spare time. But it is quite a sight to see a gymnasium full of jugglers, who come to try out tricks, socialize, pick up juggling tips, or merely have a dedicated two hours to practice without non-jugglers bothering them. Every Monday night 8-10pm at Lloyd Hall, at 1 Boat House Row, off Kelly Drive, the juggles gather and . . . juggle. And a few of them ride around on unicycles. It’s run by Philadelphia Jugglers Club and it’s free and you’re not even tested to get in, which is good, because I was never good at juggling.
