ALL THE IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR 2010
Full Moon Jams are a community event: Fire Spinners from Chicago and beyond gather together, with the passion filled music from local drummers to share with you their combined passions. The result: an evening of beautiful flames, dances, music and laughter.
The jams always start around the time of the sunset. and always end by 10:15pm. Everyone must be in their cars and out of the park by 11:00pm.
Jams happen rain or shine... but please know that these events, despite their size, are informal in many ways. No one fire spinner or drummer is required to come and share gifts at the jam. Thus.. sometimes there are less drummers and sometimes there are less fire spinners. This is just how it is.
The Jam is open to everyone and anyone. It is a free event and will continue to be. This event is NOT organized by the City of Chicago.. it is put together by a community of fire loving friends.
