Faces of Boulder – Peter

September 28th, 2022

You can catch Peter on Pearl Street performing his specialty of juggling with both his hands and feet. Starting at a young age, Peter loved to juggle: but with a twist. He competed in hacky sack competitions and won the world tournament multiple times. This taught him to juggle first with his feet, then his hands; now he juggles with both at the same time. Peter started to preform shows in San Fransisco in 1994, without know what he was doing, but eventually figured it out and hasn’t stopped. He’s preformed all over the world. His favorite places to perform were Prague and Vietnam.... Read More

Explaining Boulder County’s Name and Shape

September 13th, 2022

Most of the West was divided up into straight-edged, boxy regions and subdivisions (take a look at poor Yuma County).
