Not Quite Pittsburgh Juggling Festival III
« on: October 21, 2010, 03:30:45 AM »
Not Quite Pittsburgh Juggling Festival III will be Nov. 12 to 14, 2010 at Quaker
Valley Middle School, 201 Graham St., Sewickley, Pa., and you don’t want
to miss it!

The Leave It to Beaver Valley Jugglers and the Quaker Valley
Middle School Juggling Club are sponsoring this three-day event.  Jugglers
from several states will attend, and the event is open to anyone who
juggles, wants to learn how to juggle or just wants to watch. Last year,
about 170 jugglers from several states and Canada attended. The Saturday
evening show had an audience of about 300.

Free general juggling activities will take place from 6 to 10 p.m. Nov.
12, from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Nov. 13 and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Nov. 14
in the school gym. The festival juggling show  -- which will delight
people of all ages -- will take place at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 13 in the school
auditorium and costs $3 per person.

Activities on Nov. 12 include open juggling, juggling lessons for
beginners, a used prop sale, juggling videos and light-up juggling after
dark, weather permitting.

Activities on Nov. 13 include open juggling, juggling lessons for
beginners, juggling videos, juggling games, workshops, a raffle, a used
prop sale, a BMX demonstration and the show.

The show, emceed by Bob Nickerson, will feature Mark Hayward, members of
the Leave It to Beaver Valley Jugglers, members of the Case Juggling Club
from Case Western University in Cleveland, Flamingo Award winner, Atlanta
Phil trophy winner and International Jugglers Association juniors finalist
Ashley Ellis, and others.  Tickets for the show are $3.

Activities on Nov. 14 include open juggling, juggling videos and a used
prop sale.

Vendors will be on hand throughout to sell juggling equipment and other
juggling-related items. Unicycles and stilts are welcome.

Donations will be accepted to help cover festival costs.

This year, we have juggling festival rates at two local motels. The
deadline for getting the $99-a-night rate at the Fairfield Inn on Neville
Island is Nov. 1. After that date, you can request the rate, but the hotel
might not honor it. The hotel has an indoor pool, whirlpool spa and
fitness room, and the room rate includes a continental breakfast.

A $55 rate for a Days Inn in Coraopolis also is available.
That hotel has an indoor pool and fitness room and also offers a
continental breakfast in the rate.

Instructions for how to book using the fest rates for the motels are on
the fest Web site.

If you have nonjuggling family members or friends who want to come along,
Sewickley has a quaint shopping district with restaurants, interesting
shops and art galleries.  It is about half an hour’s drive away from some
of Pittsburgh’s top tourist attractions, including the Carnegie Science
Center, Andy Warhol Museum, Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh and National
Aviary.
