The Festival of Legends is a celebration of the mythic arts and the magic of life itself. It is a playground for the imagination – for children as well as adults – and an escape from the mundane world. It is a journey to the romantic by-gone eras that never were, and an exploration of the fantastical realms that have always been. The natives are magicians and musicians, acrobats and comedians, artists and crafters, proud knights and fairytale creatures. Step into the Festival of Legends, and step into a place of wonder. Imagine Circus adds to the whimsy with alluring aerial arts and magical stilt walking!

With a solid foundation in entertainment and a deep commitment to the well being and growth of children, singer songwriter and humorist, Mister John Saylor, became “Mister John” in 2005 and began a career in early childhood music education. A decade of experience engaging the youngest of the young on a weekly basis has enhanced his ability to connect with any audience, inspiring even the most reticent to sing, dance, and play along.
Rhythm and song are at the foundation of the art and skill of reading the written word. Join Mister John for a journey through letters, words, syllables, complete sentences and entire stories as we go from there to here and then some, through the magic of shared music. Mister John promises to entertain the children as well as their aged chauffeurs, bodyguards and caretakers. This will be fun for everybody!
Hosted and performed by Adam, a local NC Juggler! Juggling has been developed and explored across the entire world. France has been a center for the growth of circus and juggling arts for a long time. A few years ago, Adam, traveled to Toulouse France for the European Juggling Convention. The largest juggling festival in the world! While in France, he learned new skills and fun facts about present day and historic French Circus. He will be sharing parts of this adventure and show some amazing skills while we learn.
The world we live in is even more magical than anything we could hope to imagine. During this fun hour, we’re going to be playing with a vacuum chamber to see what happens to marshmallows and balloons when the pressure from the air is removed. We’ll also have some liquid nitrogen on hand and observe freezing objects which we don’t normally get to see frozen. We will discuss how these topics relate to physics in space and in the laboratory. At the end, we’ll have an entertaining act using liquid nitrogen which will be certain to amaze.
