The 5th Annual Boston Juggling Festival (formerly JuggleMIT) took place last weekend. The festival celebrates “juggling, flow arts, and object manipulation of all sorts,” and this year, it included 3 days of workshops, 2 juggling shows, a 1-trick contest, a dedicated sand-court volleyclub play area, and juggling games.
