This weekend, the town of Duncan in British Columbia, Canada, is sure to be abuzz about the newest hooping business in town. Little Miss Hula Hoop will be vending hoops at a local music festival and donating half her profits to help stop the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline, a pipeline that would travel through nearly 1,170km of pristine wilderness and First Nations homelands. Who’s behind this budding hoop business with an environmental cause? Little Miss Hula Hoop herself is perhaps the youngest hooping entrepreneur we’ve seen yet. Meet 10 year-old Trinity.

Music, laughter and bright colors filled the air at Orchard City Green in Campbell, California, earlier this week. The South Bay Hoopers, the local hoop community for those from throughout Silicon Valley who want to get together and hoop it up, flocked to the green between Campbell City Hall and the Campbell Library to spin things up and have a good time. Crissy Gugler of the The Infinite Hoop, founder and organizer of the event, told the Campbell Patch that the weekly hoop jams are taking place every Tuesday night from 7-9 p.m. The get-togethers are free and open to anyone who wants to join them, but the group doesn’t do much for publicity. “If they’re interested, they’ll find us,” Gugler said. The group’s favorite spot is Pioneer Park in Mountain View, but it also frequents Ortega Park in Sunnyvale, Municipal Rose Garden in San Jose and the Orchard City Green in Campbell. Daniel Odulo explained, “It’s cool people doing cool stuff.” Video Here.
