“How I Started Hooping” Hula Hoop Giveaway!

HoopBunny Hula Hoop GiveawayWith festival season upon us, I am reminded of how I first started my hooping journey 5 years ago. I distinctly remember arriving that first year at Mountain Jam and seeing a girl carrying 10+ hula hoops over her shoulder. That was my very first introduction that weekend and I continued to be amazed at the beautiful hoopers I saw over the next 3 days. I will never forget this one girl. She was this beautiful, muscular Asian girl hooping on a cement block next to the main stage on the Mountain. She moved the hoop up and down her body so effortlessly throughout the whole set. I don’t even remember who was playing at the time because I was so mesmerized by her! From the moment I got home that weekend I was determined to find a hoop of my own and start hooping myself. I started with a crappy LED Walmart hoop and started researching hooping like crazy. That’s when I discovered Hooping.org and HoopCity and started making my own hoops!

Anyway, I’m sure you are here for the contest so let’s move on! For this hula hoop giveaway I want to know how YOU first discovered hooping! Where were you? Who influenced you?

Peach Music Festival 2013

This past Saturday I attended the Peach Music Festival in Scranton, PA. It was my second festival of the summer (first was GrassRoots), and my first and only big name fest for the year. I was only able to go for the day Saturday because I didn’t want to leave the babe for too long, but it was a BLAST! It was definitely the coolest venue I’ve ever been to. There is a water park on site with a lazy river, wave pool, and water slides! The weather was hot and sunny too, perfect water park weather.

Butterfly on my Hoop

I brought my newest hoop that I made for myself (pictured above). It is purple/teal leopard print with purple sequin deco tape, black, and fluorescent yellow (black light reactive) gaffer tape. I will be listing it soon at the HoopBunny shop! The sad thing was, I didn’t even use it once all day! It was so crowded there wasn’t really enough open space to comfortably hoop to the music at the main stage. A butterfly landed on my hoop while I was waiting in the parking lot for the shuttle bus to the venue (I’m not even going to get into that terrible situation), and that was about as must action as my hoop got all day! I was having so much fun, this is also the only photo I took all day 🙂

I did see one girl hooping in the crowd on the lawn in front of the main stage with an awesome future hoop. She was only hooping in between sets and seemed to only be waist hooping because of the limited space. It was nice to see that hoopers were respecting others’ personal space. I hate being at a crowded event where hoopers are hitting people or taking up a ton of space to hoop. I feel like that causes certain people to really dislike hoops and hula hoopers. Believe me, there are some hoop haters out there! Lots of love and respect at the Peach Fest! Hopefully I can make it for the whole weekend next year.

Peace, Love, & Hooping xx
