It was difficult to get pictures as everything was spinning.
I did wonder how they came up with the title for the show.

The cigar box juggler possibly stole the show.

Difficult to get the shots due to all the movement.
The ring act was superb, beautiful music, great choreography and beautifully paced.
It was so good it brought a tear to my eye as I remembered others who would
have loved to have seen this act and appreciated it.

The jester compare was very good as well, this was his little spot in the show.

The guy with the plastic bag was excellent,
simple juggling but very very funny and professionally executed.

A little twisting Saturday morning.

I believe this lady is from Norway, she was standing at the door when I was running the workshop
so I invited her in to twist. Turns out she is a natural, the dinosaur was pretty good for first time twisting.

I did write her name down somewhere but have mis placed it at the moment,
this was one of the highlights of the convention for me.

The last of the pictures, the sign was in my air B&B.
I had a play with a face design on the Sunday morning.
Russell hid the frog up just outside the balloon room.

I'm pleased that I found the piece of paper with the young ladies
name who made the dinosaur and came into the balloon workshop.

It was Malin Myrseth
