Lublin Juggling Festival 2010

Lublin Carnival of Magicians! Actually a juggling convention, tightrope convention, street show festival and carnival all in one city at the same time. What a concept, and what a success! This is the same city and team who are hosting the EJC in 2012, so now I’m super excited for that too.

I performed in the Saturday Gala show, plus two street shows. I also took part in the Juggling Battle, taking third place (I was robbed!), and won the combat and coin juggling in the games on Sunday.

More importantly for this blog, I took loads of photos! High resolution versions of these photos will be along in a few days time.

I took the train. My first time in Poland, too.

A massive rain storm on the first day made me worried.

When I sat down to eat in, a fire breather started performing across the street. I’ve never taken photos of fire breathing before, and I didn’t leave my table…

Juggling games! I could only take this photo because I’d just won the previous round of combat, so I was already through to the final. Which I won, of course.
