Do You Feel Jumpy?

An entire generation is growing to tweenhood tossed around like popcorn kernels in those inflatable jumpy houses, weekend in and weekend out. We know, because we watch jealously from our picnic blankets in parks throughout the city, weekend in and weekend out. When we were kids, all we had were trampolines, man. At the massive Family Festival, jumpy houses — that's right, multiple jumpy houses — are only the beginning. Roving circus people, hands-on activities organized by the Exploratorium and the Museum of Modern Art, and the deathless, ancient ritual of communal pumpkin-carving join kid-friendly performances and carousel rides at this enormous excuse to run around screaming.
