TREVOR "The Games Man"


Stiltwalking Photos
More than anything else, I get my picture taken stiltwalking, so I have way more pictures of me stiltwalking than of everything else I do. That's just the way it is. Get used to it.

So in reverse chronological order, here's a ton of pictures of me on stilts:

Starry Starry Night Parade of Stars
Orange MA
As at my last performance at this event in 2017, after my two indoor shows, I got to lead the annual Parade of Stars from Town Hall down Main St to the town park. As soon as we got there, it started snowing fairly heavily, so it was rather treacherous walking back up the hill to where I was parked. I was very thankful to a local woman who stopped her car and jumped out to help me up the street for the last block because it was scary!

Newport Irish St. Patrick's Day Parade
Newport RI
March 11, 2017

It was so cold that day: 20° with a wind chill factor of -8°! I had to wear my yellow wool beret with a balaclava under it, a scarf, a down vest, two jackets, four shirts, 3 pairs of gloves, three pairs of pants, knee pads, and four pairs of socks including my battery-operated electric socks. It was, indeed, extremely cold outside... but I was toasty! AND, I was voted "Best Crowd Pleaser" in the parade, too! What an honor! What a parade!

"Going to See TREVOR!"

She's know me since I was born and has doted on me my whole life. It was great to see her and her local family members at the fair!

It was a rainy, drizzly day, so before the parade started, I was waiting under this shop's awning (it's the slanty thing viewed end on, just above my hat). One of the staff came rushing out to take a photo of me in front of their cafe. I ducked out from under the awning for the photo, and the photographer was kind enough to send it to me.

On the same rainy day as the photo just above, this guy, Bill Davison, really wanted his wife to take a picture of us together. He was imitating me, too, so I told him to Grow UP!

April 25, 2010
The Autism Resource Center of Central MA has booked me several times for their annual Spring Walk-a-thon at Lake Park in Worcester. At this event, caring adults gather a team of walkers around a specific loved one who has autism. Towards the end of the walk this particular year, I just happened to be walking by as Conner's Team was gathering for their photo when they beckoned me over to be in the photo. Team member Erica Ploof was kind enough to send me a copy.

This is at the groundbreaking ceremony for River Valley Market in the old quarry site at the top of King St in Northampton MA. RVM board of directors president Betsy Powell is standing on the ground. My feet are on the ground, too, but I'm actually sitting on the bucket of a huge front loader parked on the site. It was the perfect height.

Not only is this the River Valley Market groundbreaking, but this date also marked a professional milestone in my career: I'd been stiltwalking for 20 years!   (Mind if I stay sitting down for a bit?)

Green River Hot Air Balloon & Music Festival
Greenfield Community College
Greenfield MA
July 17, 1999

At the Green River Hot Air Balloon & Music Festival,  I did a lot of "walk-around" that day before doing a show at the end of the festival. This was very early in the day. There weren't very many people there yet, so I spent a lot of time with those who were. This family was intrigued and  followed me around a lot.

The two girls had been doing acrobatics on the lawn as I approached, so it didn't surprise me at all when they tried to be as tall as me. They were going to put the little boy up on top, but their dad wouldn't let them for some strange reason that they just couldn't fathom.

Mountain Road Schoolhouse annual picnic
Gill Elementary School
Gill MA
June 6, 1998
The above two photos are from the same event. The Mountain Road School day care center in Gill MA booked me every year for their end of the year picnic from 1990 until the owner retired in 2005. In the top photo, I'm holding an alligator toy that when you squeeze the red trigger in my hand, the jaws of the alligator open and close. I pulled it out and said, "Does anyone need a little trim?" and was instantly mobbed with kids wanting haircuts! So, I'm giving free trims in that photo.

In the lower photo is the amazing color-changing Chameleon Stick doing tricks for the same crowd. (You may have noticed that in the upper photo at the very left is the right arm of the pink sweat-shirted girl with braids in the photo below. Everyone else who was sitting in front of her is in the mob scene in the upper one!)
