…aka BUSKER FESTIVAL!!
dad and i wandered over to uptown friday eve to catch a couple of performances. the spectacular weather (sunny, hot) drew HUGE crowds of all ages!
party food ->
on saturday eve, the weather was just as perfect – back uptown went i, searching out feats of amazingness!
the first show i happened upon was “strings of fire” from australia (although he was a finn):
now, this comment will make me sound like a real PARTY POOPER, but to be frank, i was unimpressed by the *talent* on display this year. none of the acts i observed had the wit, humour, energy, or skill that i have admired in previous years. an off year, perhaps?
or did i miss the best shows?? all in all, i was disappointed in this year’s festival.
[sidenote #1: i used dad’s camera for all of these photos. i promise it is on loan, only. although i am SO tempted to keep it, much like the ipod BEAST that is still in my possession!].
how was your weekend? did you partake in any fun ‘n’ games? one of these years, i am going to ride the ferris wheel that is a mainstay of the festival midway!
