Cirque AmongUs is Coming Back for Our 5th Year!

Many have asked if it’s true. It is. Cirque AmongUs will be back for the 5th consecutive Maker Faire Fort Wayne so if you need to hone up on your circus performance skills, now is your chance!Man on Dicycle

You may remember Sem Abrahams, Guinness Record holder for the world’s tallest unicycle ride at an unbelievable 110 feet!?! We’ve asked him to return with his crazy monocycle, the one-wheeled, motorized “vehicle” that this writer considers close to being a deathtrap.

Come to Maker Faire to learn fundamentals of circus arts – juggling, movement and balance – in a safe, fun-filled, and educational environment. Walk a tightrope, juggle, see if you can flip on o-rings or have fun riding a variety of custom wheeled cycles (for lack of a better word) Sem and his family have dreamed up and built.

Maker Faire is like no other event in that guests participate in experiential learning such as how to weld or solder while learning how Makers of the region and beyond go about turning their ideas into reality. Who knows which idea will change the world. Maybe you’ll find that you’re a Maker too!

Fort Wayne is once again a stop on The Power Racing Series, a national circuit pitting racers against each other in short heat and endurance racing. The 2015 circuit kicks off this weekend at the Bay Area Flagship Maker Faire! It includes stops at Maker Faires in Kansas City and Detroit followed two weeks later by Fort Wayne, then goes to New York World Maker Faire, and ends in Atlanta in October. Racers earn points for speed, endurance and Moxie along the way.

Good luck to all racers throughout the entire season.
