And check out Circus Cascadia workshops near the main stage. After their 11:30 clown show, these talented performers can teach you their tricks. Learn to ride a unicycle, use a hula hoop, walk a balance beam, juggle!

You also can help paint a street labyrinth at the intersection of Third and Broadway streets on Saturday morning or observe (and help) local artist Jon Birchfield carve a totem.
