Kids of All Ages 

Wednesday, Dec 10 2008
It's finally here: the chance to get your grubby mitts on the trapeze of your dreams. Fly through the air with the greatest of ease, at least in your mind. At the San Francisco Circus Center's Open House and Holiday Carnival, that's not all. The famous school of all things three-ring also offers face-painting, trampoline-jumping, and rolla-bolla-rolling for visitors tall and small. The staff teaches miniworkshops on clowning for kids, which could be like a self-defense class or a protective cover, depending on whether your kid has developed a fear of clowns yet. Calliope demonstrations on a real "steam piano" accompany roving performers, and in the evening, the show Pratfalls and Rising Stars features the center's clowning and aerial students.

  • San Francisco Street Food Festival 2014
    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
