The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,200 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 53 trips to carry that many people.

This is the annual Halloween fundraising show for Vesta, Nanaimo’s contemporary circus and fire performance troupe. Funds raised assist with the rental of our winter practice studio.

Vesta is internationally acclaimed, performing internationally with tours of both Asia and the USA. Their spectacular fire shows have been the highlight of many local events such as the VIEX and Winterfest. Vesta also runs summer camps, and teaches ongoing circus lessons for kids and adults at Nanaimo Gymnastics School. They are funded via ArtStarts in Schools as ‘artist in residence’ to teach and perform in schools- this year teaching grade 2’s and 4’s at Coal Tyee Elementary.

Please share this event with your friends, family and networks! Thank you for your support of Arts and Culture in your community!
