Jugglers' walk through Perth, Scotland - 2 April 2005

This is the first Kids' Walking Story to be posted to the site - the first of many, we hope.


A relaxing spring afternoon in the Fair City of Perth, following a procession of jugglers and watching them perform in St John's Square. The British Juggling Convention was taking place in the city over the weekend.

Frances says:

  • The thing I remember most was watching the competitions in the square
  • The worst bit - it was quite a long walk!
  • The funniest bit was the people with sticks on their chins spinning a ball and trying to juggle at the same time
  • A word of warning is to watch out for a falling unicyclist if you're sitting in the front row!
  • I was surprised by was the little boy who was on one of the unicycles in the parade
