World Juggling Day is Saturday, June 15, and Ripley’s Believe It or Not on International Drive is celebrating with an event free to the public.
Ripley’s is partnering with the International Jugglers’ Association to celebrate this ancient art by showcasing local jugglers at more than a dozen of its Odditoriums around the world. At Ripley’s Orlando Odditorium, the public can watch local jugglers show off their skills starting at 1 p.m. Saturday, June 15.
All jugglers (regardless of skill level) are invited to participate – just bring your balls, clubs, rings or whatever you juggle and join in the fun! It’s also an opportunity for people to try juggling for the very first time. Jugglers recruited by the International Jugglers’ Association will be on hand to help those who have always wanted to juggle, but never had the chance.
“For decades, Ripley’s has been recognizing the amazing feats achieved by jugglers,” said Tim O’Brien, Ripley’s VP of Communications. “We’re now proud to be a part of this global event and to provide the perfect place for jugglers to show what they can do, and at the same time, perhaps introduce people to this art.”
The juggling event is free, but visitors who want to tour the Odditorium will need to purchase tickets.
