Jim Hilburger at Providence Children's Museum

Click on thumbnail for full size image

On Friday, June 28th, Jim Hilburger (Papa Jims Traveling Top & Yo-yo Show), had a command performance at the Providence Children's Museum. Jim (famous for his show at schools, hospitals, museums, and anywhere else some cheer is needed) was invited by the museum to perform his "under two minute" top turning show. This was done at the end of an already long day at the Providence AAW '02 Convention. As you can see from the pictures, Jim has another collection of fans in yet another state.

While the parents looked on from up close ...

the kids looked on from way up close

Sam Ciccia and Barb Berger (taking these photos) also helped Jim

 

Of course, all of the kids got a top of their own to take home, always done in less than 2 minutes

Looks like Jim may be a movie star in Japan once the video gets there
