CLOWNS or JESTERS or JUGGLERS or MIMES
with Yo-Yos Contest!
at the ANNUAL YO-YO CONVENTION & SKILL TOYS CONVENTION
Donít laugh just yet, but clowns, jesters, jugglers and mime performers are invited to participate
in a contest at this fun & famous mid-west Yo-Yo Convention & Skills Toys Convention if they include at least one yo-yo in their act.
The use of yo-yos can be serious or totally silly, or even just as a fun prop.
The yo-yo can even play just a minor role in the act.
Contestants must be in full costume and perform 1 to 2 minutes for a family audience with some yo-yo fun.
Real yo-yoing and real yo-yos are not even required. Just show us a yo-yo at least once in your bit!
Though not required, juggling, plate spinning, diabolos or other toys are welcome in the clowning bit as well.
Amateurs, professionals, youth, or adults may enter. Prizes may be awarded based on costume/appearance, audience applause and laughter, stage presence,
inclusion of 1 or more yo-yos, uniqueness, and good-clean fun for a family audience. Performers must be pre-approved to perform, plus provide all
their own props and music if needed, and be in costume. No fire, no confetti, no water, no guns of any kind are allowed. This is a family-friendly
event and all acts must fit this atmosphere.
