I have a mix of buskers today. Here's another take on the Popeye and Olive duo I showed you some days ago, having had wrangled a couple of not so willing volunteers to join them in the act.
This fellow is billed as Pyromancer, whose act of course involved playing with fire in multiple ways.
El Gleno Grande is a veteran busker who combines circus goofiness and clowning with dry wit. He was dashing about on his noble "steed".
There was a chalkboard artist, different than the one from last year. I spoke with him early in the festival (and didn't catch his name), but liked the two works of art he had been working on.
Here's another look at the Bang Bang Boys, whose act I showed you some days ago.
Today I'm finishing with a couple of more shots from one of the members of Spring Action Trampoline.
You certainly got your fill of entertainment at this festival! :)ReplyDelete
You have a lot of experiences and entertainment there.ReplyDelete
The event sure brings out the people. How on earth do you remember their names?ReplyDelete
... the names of the people in the acts, that is.ReplyDelete
I remain amazed at the depth of talent present for this affair! That artist does gorgeous work. It looks like the kiddos were entranced by all the goings-on!ReplyDelete
Lots of entertainment keep the people coming and good weather adds its touch too. Great events for the summertime.ReplyDelete
Fabulous, William. Full of life - and talent!ReplyDelete
@Halcyon: I did.ReplyDelete
@Janis: there is a brochure out each year. Most names were there.
@Lowell: it was such fun to attend.
@Bill: quite so.
I love the chalkboard art! I remember seeing one about 27 years ago in Boston.ReplyDelete
Looks like a big event, William !ReplyDelete
I like esp the two works of the chalkboard artist.
Amazing art work.ReplyDelete
Nice catch on the trampoline where you aught the girl in the air. These festivals are well worth attending.ReplyDelete
Those chalk artists are amazing. I love seeing them at work.ReplyDelete
@Norma: it's delightful to see.ReplyDelete
@Karl: it is a well attended event.
@Red: yes, it was good timing with the camera.
@Sharon: so do I.
Lots to watch there! The chalkboard pieces are wonderful as well.ReplyDelete
Looks like you didn't miss a beat, William! Thanks a lot for sharing.ReplyDelete
Act involving fire always makes me nervous, even if the performer is very skilled! i love those chalkboard art works. They look beautiful!ReplyDelete
What a wonderful day filled with so much entertainment! Have a happy day!ReplyDelete
My goodness there is a LOT of stuff going on there. How neat and thanks for sharing with us.ReplyDelete
It certainly looks well attended.ReplyDelete
wonder how long the chalkboard art does last? very cool. some one is way talented!! ( :ReplyDelete
Amazing what some people can do with chalk.ReplyDelete
Such talent in the chalkboard drawings!ReplyDelete
@Marleen: chalk art ends up being very different from busking acts, but it's good to see it unfold.ReplyDelete
@Linda: you're welcome.
@Tamago: I imagine buskers who work with fire do have their own scars and burns from occasional missteps.
@Nancy: thank you!
@MB: and there was still one or two acts that I didn't manage to take in over these few days.
@RedPat: it was.
@Beth: I think the artist washed away his work on one case, and the other was on a surface that he could take with him.
@Stefan: it really is.
@Janey: oh yes.
What a fun event! The sidewalk artist is very talented. Oh and in answer to your comment on my blog post today, yes, boiled peanuts is a thing. Mostly southern US, but very tasty!ReplyDelete
wow, the chalk work is impressive!ReplyDelete
These buskers look very entertaining and the artwork is exceptional.ReplyDelete
That is quite a festival. The chalk artist was good.ReplyDelete
@Lois: ah, that explains it.
@Tex: I thought so myself.
@Denise: thank you, I agree.
@Mari: he had real talent at it.
The chalk work on the sidewalk never fails to amaze me. The quality is astonishing.ReplyDelete
This looks like a really fun event. You guys enjoy the fine weather better than anyone.ReplyDelete
That chalk artist is amazing! Busker Festivals are fun. They used to have them in Fredericton years ago so I haven't been to one since.ReplyDelete
Wonderful acrobat and very lovely street paintings.ReplyDelete
The chalk art is amazing. I'm so glad you captured them in photos. So sad that they'll be washed away. (If we ever get serious rain!) Did you get some yesterday? My kids are canoe camping in Algonquin Park, on a lake, off another lake, with a portage and a 6 and 8 yr. old. They're troopers! And there was a storm yesterday. sigh. what, me worry?!ReplyDelete
@Kay: it's great work!ReplyDelete
@Oakland: this event is a lot of fun.
@Pamela: I wonder if they still have them.
@Orvokki: thank you!
@Jennifer: there wasn't a chalk artist this year.
