Aerial Antics At A Street Fair In The Evening

As I'm busy here, have a look at my photoblog today, as I have a post from the Ottawa Welcomes The World ongoing embassy series, this one focusing on Egypt.

In June, we had the Glowfair festival here; I covered the event in detail over at my writer's blog, here and here. Among the artists, music, and other entertainment for the street event was a troupe of aerialists called Aerial Antics. I thought it to be fitting subject matter to leave until now, since the Busker Festival will be taking over Sparks Street starting on Thursday. It's also a good lead-in for tomorrow's theme day.
