If it prohibited tricks on private property, likely yes.Contact the Pa. Civil Liberties Union. On public property--I don't see it being invalid unless it is used to cover non-pedestrian areas such as open spaces used by jugglers, dancers, others.

The original post, I believe, dealt with someone who felt that a licensing law blocked his right to travel. There is no specific right to travel--for instance you cannot trespass to travel....Read more »

However the behaviours could be actionable or not depending on whether this is a work environment, a school, or merely social. See if the Pennsylvania Civll Liberties union has any "cooperating...Read more »
