Run, don’t walk. Or maybe take your unicycle

August 4, 2013

Seriously, if you haven’t made it down to Sparks Street yet this weekend (we’ve been down there twice – so far), you really should check out Buskerfest.

I mean, where else are you going to catch an Olympian in the act this weekend?

Did I mention unicycles?


Budapest Marionettes. Yes that is a marionette with it’s own marionette:


Alakazam. I don’t even know how to describe this.


What are you doing? Oh you know, just eating fire.


Yes, that is a man riding a giant yoyo while his wife hoolas 30 hoops:


Two weeks ago we went to Totem. Then we spent a week at a cottage with a Bongo. V has wanted to do nothing but go to Buskerfest every day this weekend. When I asked her her favorite part, the following were ‘awesome’: The marionettes, the fire eating, the guy in the racquet, the hoolahoops, and the trampoline. I’m now fairly sure she’ll be joining the circus when she grows up.

The one part I know she loved was coming to us at the end of the show for the ‘tips’ for each performer’s hat. Man they earned it.

EDIT: How could I forget? You can also get Wolverine as your personal navigator for the ride home!
