A band of fire jugglers will light up the evening at historic Van Cortlandt Manor in Croton-on-Hudson during "A Night on Fire," a brand new event taking place tonight, May 26.
Beginning at 8 p.m., this one-hour, one-evening-only performance is a fully choreographed, live display of fire arts featuring four flame-wielding, fire-eating performers twisting and turning, juggling and dancing, spinning and sword fighting.
Produced and performed by the juggling and comedy troupe A Different Spin, "A Night on Fire" will feature spectacular stunts and family friendly humor and is ideal for audiences of all ages.
Though it is a separate ticketed performance, "A Night on Fire" is a complement to Animals & Acrobats, which takes place 10-5pm at Van Cortlandt Manor on Memorial Day weekend, Saturday-Monday. Featuring a variety of performers and animal conservation groups, Animals & Acrobats evokes an early-American traveling circus.
