If you happen to be walking along the Harbourfront this weekend, you might stumble across a massive pile of buffalo skulls.

There is some serious flippage going on. Meanwhile, junior wannabe-clowns spend their time practicing goofy walks and wacky voices. This is life inside Harbourfront Centre’s circus camp for kids.
