  • Orlando, FL (1888PressRelease) June 12, 2013 - Have plans for this Saturday, June 15? If so, you better juggle that schedule in order to join in the celebration of World Juggling Day at Ripley's Believe It or Not!

    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.

    Ripley's Believe It or Not! Odditoriums around the world are hosting local events. 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."

    Participating Ripley's Believe It or Not! Odditoriums include:
    Orlando, Key West and St. Augustine, Florida
    Williamsburg, Virginia
    Baltimore, Maryland
    Grand Prairie and San Antonio, Texas
    Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
    Gatlinburg, Tennessee
    San Francisco, California
    Branson, Missouri
    Newport, Oregon
    Niagara Falls, Ontario
    London, England

    The International Jugglers' Association has members throughout the world and will be holding additional events where there are no Ripley's Odditoriums in at least 38 countries.
