The Acrobats At Work

As Fraser Hooper's act had been finished at this spot before the finale took place, he also took part in the finale show, bringing a kid up from the audience for a bit of goofing around.

The Checkerboard Guy returned as well. He took an element from his solo show as his part of the show- shuffling three unconnected wooden boxes back and forth, including behind him and behind his legs, keeping them held in a line- and over-reacting on one occasion when they didn't.

And two more acrobats took part. Kim from Street Circus collaborated with Reuben DotDot Dot again, as they had in an evening group show, for some handstand tricks.


  1. Who pays them all for the entertainment and time they give - or is a hat passed around the audience?

  2. Still busy with my photos ! Coming back from such a long trip, I have quite some work to do !

  3. i love the hat. those pants are so cool too. what fun outfits. happy weekend!! ( ;

  4. These shows are crowd pullers! Very entertaining!

  5. Those checkered pants are so 80's. Love them!

  6. My grandson always wants to be "the kid from the audience" who gets to help the magician!

  7. Wow! I love those handstand pictures. I wish I had that sort of balance. :-)

  8. Hello, they are amazing. Great show! Enjoy your day and weekend!

  9. Those handstands are pretty darn impressive.

  10. All great shows. I've seen the box event before. I do like the handstand people.

  11. @Rosemary: it's a pass the hat around the audience sort of thing at the end of the act, but there are sponsors involved as well.

    @Tom: it was!

    @Gattina: take your time.

    @Francisco: thanks!

    @Beth: thank you.

    @Nancy: they did bring out the crowds!

    @Sandi: you couldn't miss them in a crowd.

    @Shammickite: I'd be the sort who'd much rather take photographs!

    @DJan: I certainly don't have that balance!

    @Eileen: thank you!

    @Marie: they are.

    @Carol: thanks!

    @Catarina: one more day to go.

    @Bill: thank you!

  20. More great pics of these interesting performers. I wonder how they get into this line of work? Were they born into it do you think, or did they suddenly decide later in life? Would enjoy reading their reasons. They certainly look very entertaining.

  21. Interesting performance. I admire their agility.

  22. what strength... i would love to try it ... i know i probably couldn't do it ...but it would be fun and funny to see??! lol! ( ;
