The Bubble Man, Juggling & Bubbling & Mime is an eccentric combination of comedy juggling and astounding gigantic bubbles choreographed to music. Hat tricks, dexterity and audience participation are displayed in the three and five ball juggling. Doug will then create intricate and beautiful bubble sculptures (such as the bubble carousel and bubble-in-a-bubble), giant bubbles three feet in diameter, bubble tubes twelve feet long, the bubble cube, an the breathtaking child in a bubble! The good time music includes clap along hits and rocking oldies. Juggling & Bubbling & Mime is an action packed 45-50 minute show that will get an enthusiastic response from family audiences and keep them talking about your event for days.
Maker Club Defined.
What do you do at Maker Club?
We make things! At each session, we’ll focus on a different DIY.org skill area (cardboard, Perler beads, tape, mechanical engineering, and others!). Choose from suggested projects, or come up with your own. You can also get ideas for more things to make at home, work together on ideas, help brainstorm future Club projects, and show off your work.
Who is Maker Club for?
Children and teens ages 7 and up. With that in mind, children 10 and under will need help with the projects and must be accompanied by an adult. In Maker Club, we use real tools, some of which are sharp or hot – Maker Club projects are not appropriate for preschoolers.
Do I need to sign up for DIY.org to be a part of Maker Club?
Nope! DIY.org is just one way to share your work with others and ask questions. You don’t need to sign up if you don’t want to.
Do I need to come to every session, or stay for the whole session?
No, and no. You can come to as many or as few session as you want, and stay for a short time or for the whole two hours.

NOPL @ N. Syracuse
Cap off the long Central NY winter with this enchanting film about love’s power to thaw the deepest snows and warm the frostiest of hearts! To Queen Elsa of Arendelle, her magical powers of ice are a curse that must be hidden away. After she accidentally traps the kingdom in eternal winter, it’s up to the fiercely optimistic Princess Anna – with the help of a team of weird, lovable characters she meets along the way – to restore summer to Arendelle and save her sister from the icy prison she’s made for herself. Rated PG for some action and very mild rude humor.
Disney, 1 hr 42 minutes. Rated PG. Popcorn will be served!
