I went to cover Circus Camp this week here in Victoria. I’ve covered ‘circus’ camps before and they were never this elaborate or well, lets just say it, awesome. Kids were walking on stilts, teetering on tightropes, zooming about on mini-bikes, juggling scarves and dressing up however they wished. It was a kid’s dream experience. The whole time I was there I couldn’t help but wish I wasn’t too old to attend Circus Camp too.
Last weekend we went to the Jamaica Plains Lantern parade. The community makes (or buys from community centers to support them) lanterns and then walks around Jamaica pond together in a procession of light and color. It was really beautiful to see so many lanterns and families out together having a great time and celebrating the beginning of winter.
Heres just a few shots from the night:
