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.
Wonderful photos of the events, William!ReplyDelete
On top of ladders? Juggling fire? And still talking? That's some act!ReplyDelete
Fun and enjoyable time! Have a beautiful day!ReplyDelete

@Eileen: thank you.
They had a big audience!ReplyDelete
Surely a highlight !ReplyDelete
The more banter , the more entertaining. The more wiggly the props , the greater the suspense.ReplyDelete
my brother juggles ... i have yet to ever figure it all out. i can do one ...but never worked well with many more??! ha. ha! nice outfits! ( ;ReplyDelete
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 .ReplyDelete
Looks like the Buskerfest was well attended William, that must be so satisfying for them, to perform before such a huge crowd!ReplyDelete
That must have been fun to watch!ReplyDelete
They are very popular & I'm sure so much fun to watch!ReplyDelete
Wow what a show!ReplyDelete
@RedPat: people really come out for this.ReplyDelete
@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.
@Christine: it's quite a treat.
@Janey: it was!
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. :)ReplyDelete
Yeah. I don't they would get away with that here in D.C. We've got enough flame throwers as it is. :)ReplyDelete
That juggling act looked quite uniqu and only wish the photos were a bit larger, William.ReplyDelete
What fun! Those juggling firemen must have put on quite a show. Great photos William :)ReplyDelete
The crowds are huge!ReplyDelete
Who doesn't love fire fighters?ReplyDelete
Nice shots of this wonderful act.ReplyDelete
Love the name of this group. Looks like they put on a good show.ReplyDelete
We used to have the Police Circus and Firemen's Rodeo here when I was a kid. They had acts like this, only not in the streets.ReplyDelete
Lots of skill and daring involved I imagine.ReplyDelete
Very talented people. Good shots.ReplyDelete
@Bill: we have a lot going on.ReplyDelete
@Beatrice: I should use the zoom lens more often, but I find the sharper shots come from regular resolution.
@Denise: thank you!
@Mari: this event draws people out.
@Halcyon: they did.
@Norma: this is a tradition.
