Juggle Mania

This week, the 33rd Annual Isla Vista Juggling Festival will roll into town again, helping to raise funds for the S.B. Rape Crisis Center one bowling pin (or other object) at a time. If you’ve never seen the show-which is now the longest-running juggling festival in the entire U.S.-then your whole family is in for a treat: bring the whole clan up to UCSB this weekend to see jugglers, unicyclists, clowns, and magicians strut their stuff, all for a great cause. Here are some highlights from the series of events that will make up this year’s show:

• Fri., Apr. 10, 6-11pm: Open juggling practice at Robertson Gym, UCSB. (Free.)

• Sat., Apr. 11, 10am-6pm: Open juggling and field workshops at Robertson Gym, UCSB. (Free.)

• Sat., Apr. 11, 7:30-10pm: Public juggling show at I.V. Theater (960 Embarcadero del Norte). ($5-$10.)
