Jolly jogglers to jog into Rochester

Dear Answer Man, what is "joggling?" There's an event coming up in Rochester this summer and I've never heard of it. Will it be part of Rochesterfest? — Jim

Joggling is a rather mind-boggling combination of track and field events with juggling. Have to admit, I've never heard of it before, but I now have a news release on my desk from the International Jugglers Association , based in Kenmore, N.Y., and they're planning the World Joggling Championships for Rochester on July 20. Jugglers will be in town from July 18 to July 24 .

The website declares that Mayo Civic Center has "immense, spotless, state-of-the-art juggling space," which I'm sure is true, and the group has a full week of events planned.

As long as there are no mimes, it ought to be an amazing week. Mark your calendars now.

Rochestefest is June 17-26 this year, by the way, so no overlap with the jugglers.
