Front Porch: Meet a world-class gymnast
More than 300 of the world's best gymnasts will head to Comcast Arena when the 2012 Kellogg's Pacific Rim Gymnastics Championships open Friday.
But if you can't wait for Friday, Imagine Children's Museum is holding a Gymnastics Night from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday. There will be tumbling, flipping and twirling as folks from Leading Edge Gymnastics Academy show kids how it's done. There will be a guest appearance by Carly Patterson, Olympic gold medalist. Special event admission is $5 for members and $8 for nonmembers at the museum, 1502 Wall St., Everett. Tickets are available at the museum. For more information call 425-258-1006 or go to www.imaginecm.org.
