Firemen

The Circus Firemen were another act during Buskerfest. I caught them doing their act at the east end of Sparks Street one day. It's a combination of comedy, high balance, and juggling as the two banter with each other and the audience. Their finale makes use of juggling torches.

  9. The more banter , the more entertaining. The more wiggly the props , the greater the suspense.

  11. I seen them many times. The one set of entertainers picked me to be with them. For sure not doing the tricks. Just being a bystander to bring more people over to watch. They are great entertainment for all ages. Many of them told me this is the way they make money to go to University. I stayed in contact by email for many years with one humours group . Then now they have graduated University. Out in the regular world of working .

  15. @RedPat: people really come out for this.

    @Karl: it's a lot of fun!

    @Red: that's true!

    @Beth: I would lack the coordination to try it.

    @Carolann: it's quite a life. I should have attended the finale show, when all of the buskers perform together.

    @Grace: it was a fun event to take in.

    @Sharon: they're very good at what they do.

    @Marleen: it definitely was.

  16. I'm impressed by those fire jugglers, incredible and a little crazy at the same time. The people loved it, I bet. Nice photos of the event, William. Ottawa is a place where there is always something happening. :)

  17. Yeah. I don't they would get away with that here in D.C. We've got enough flame throwers as it is. :)
