Thank you for writing about this. I've lived in Tucson for 5 years but I've never heard of the 211 service.
Great fun meeting in the beautiful park right next to the tennis courts and parking lot in the shade. Bathrooms nearby. Fun group of folks. Bring a chair and water. Your drum or noise maker.
No experience necessary.
Fun to play with nice people - beginners to old hand drummers.
Stop by and pick up a noise maker and join in.
non phony, not sugary or sacchiriny, just real...religious ordeals always make me uncomfortable, and this felt so friendly and really open and cool...I recommend this to everyone who is searching...
The Mission Garden is fabulous. Check it out!
Winter hours (December through March) are 12 pm to 4 pm on Saturdays; summer hours (April through November) are 8 am to 12 pm on Saturdays.
And Himmel Park.
Definitely something everyone should see... I loved it and plan to return again on Holloween. I give it five stars.
This event is awesome and without peer in Tucson. The food you eat is like what your grandma would make (if you had a Thai grandma). The first time we went, I was a little nervous, as I had never been in a Buddhist temple before; but, it's been smooth sailing ever since. Recommend you wear sandals with no socks, as you must remove your shoes before entering. If you end up eating in the rear garden, you won't want socks on (it's soft sand). If you eat in the temple, you must be shoeless also. Try this once, you will hooked. Best kept 'secret' in Tucson.
Great service to the public! Learn about participating in clinical research while you are there!
What a fun way to spend an evening for a special outing! Tucson has so many hidden treasures and this is one of them. The show has huge entertainment value; bringing smart laughs, intriguing dance and of course MAGIC! Roland and Susan have fantastic chemistry and they demand your attention for the entire performance.
The small venue makes you feel like you are a part of the performance even if you are not chosen to be an audience participant for one of the many illusions presented throughout the night. We will go back again, and have not stopped telling our friends.
My Husband, Daughter and I LOVE LOVE LOVE magic, and have had no more magical and heartwarming experience than when spending our evenings with the lovely Roland and Susan who truly embody the whimsical "Carnival of Illusion"! It feels as though you've entered a mansion filled with curious family and friends, only to be captivated and mystified by two charming souls who leave you with the feeling that you've just witnessed magical illusions performed by 2 old friends who spent years abroad, telling colorful stories about their intruiges, just before dazzling everyone with spectacular yet intimate magic that leaves everyone equal parts amazed, dazzled, mystified, and somehow, laughing all together as though we'd all gathered for a Holiday dinner followed by magic in the parlor hidden away from everyone but us. It's our 2nd happy year, and sure to be our Annual Magic Pilgrimage every Autumn! Please note, this is such a special experience, and it's so vital for the pleasure of the entire audience that only children who can sit quietly, patiently, and can appreciate the stories & magic of this performance should consider attending. There are very real moments when it's essential for the audience to "hear a pin drop", and interact with our magicians appropriately, that I would caution families to consider everyone's experience before considering attending with children. Thank you Roland and Susan for finally selling your fabulous card boxes, and most of all, your SHOT GLASSES! We ran right home and filled our glass with little glass beads & baubles, and proudly display our whimsical glass for all of our guests to see! Can't wait to see you again next year, dying to hear another intruiging story of a distant land where you've brought back to us yet more fabulous parlor magic! Everyone must try this very special experience, and make Carnival of Illusion your yearly pigrimage to Magic Mecca! Niki, Charlie and Athena
A delightful evening! Grins on every face in the audience. A unique experience and such a pleasure to watch two charismatic performers who so obviously love what they're doing! My 9 year old son, who sometimes exhibits a teen-ager's cynicism, was fascinated! The look of wonder and excitement on his face throughout the show was priceless. The two stars were very gracious, greeting the guests afterwards and staying for pictures. They were also very attentive and patient with my son, answering his questions and encouraging his curiosity. They could not have been more kind! I would highly recommend this magical evening to young, old, and everyone in between!
This is awesome!!! Totally worth every dollar spent! I would definitly go see it again.
Awesome Show! This beats a movie and dinner. This live show is sure to please!
I went a couple of days ago and loved it !! I'm looking for a place to tent camp for a week or so close to Torts. Anyone with ideas e-mail me !
Saw the Carnival of Illusion at Westin La Paloma. Way cool and lots of fun...GO!
I think the person is right about Alexis Faust. But is Alexis Faust reading this? If not then it's pointless.
Maybe someone should post about links to where we can make a difference?
Btw what would searching personals on CL make any difference to this issue?
I have gone to HH with this group. A bunch of nice, friendly, accepting people. They have other fun things to do. I look forward to doing more things with them.
Great fun, but the sound on the main stage was way too loud to enjoy for the final performance.
went to the El Presidio Plaza Park Mercado and there wasn't a stick of produce, only crafts.
I was ignorant about the mission of this "museum" so I am submitting this review because people should know how their money for admission is used -so they can make an informed choice. This museum is a tax write-off for big game hunters to go to Africa and hunt down mainly big game kills. Your money supports their trips and cost to pay for sending their kills to the taxidermist. So go if you support the killing of our wildlife for fun and profit. In the first ten years of their existence, Tucsonans referred to this place as "Dead animal museum' .
