The annual International Busker Festival in Halifax, Nova Scotia is easily one of the most anticipated and loved events in the historical Canadian city.
A busker is basically any type of street performer, and this leads to a great combination of pavement artists, mime performers, comedians, acrobats, and jugglers.
The oldest and largest busker festival in the country will feature a couple of dozen of the world’s top street performers from August 5th to August 15th 2010 in the splendid maritime town.
The performers entertain, play, and act in the continuous revolving show that takes place over 11 days on five stages along Halifax’s Famous Waterfront.
The event typically attracts about half a million visitors and residents as they stroll along the boardwalk and soak in the atmosphere of the entertainers. You can even drop in at one of several beer tents along the way.
The festival’s an ideal event for children to enjoy themselves as well as keep themselves busy by having their faces painted and playing in the interactive children’s village.
The whole city usually takes in the fantastic open-air festival by the sea as it comes to life with a mixture of magic, music, and fun for people of all ages.
