Victoria International Buskers Festival 2011

On Friday the Buskers Festival began in downtown Victoria and yesterday we ventured out to see some of the brilliant performances being offered on six different stages throughout the city center. Victoria, of course is already home to some very top notch street performers, as showcased here by Benjamin Madison, and I only hope that this event brings more people downtown to enjoy all the local talent as well as our special guests this week.
Starting top left, going clockwise is Byron Bertram, Both Sides of the Coin, Flame Oz with a member of the audience in the x-lg underwear and cape(!), Flame Oz again, and Lindsay Benner entertaining the love of her life whom she pulled from the crowd, of course.
The Festival runs through to July 24th. If you can, get down there and enjoy some great entertainment! -Fern

I hope most of them have been able to perform in our crappy weather.

My wife and I just got back from SKAM's bike theatre along the Galloping Goose. Lots of funny stuff (and some weird stuff, too...)

Looks like an awful lot of fun as long as nobody got hurt!

Buskers are such good value, it just makes a city atmosphere I think. Fantastic shots Ben, so many buskers in one spot would have been amazing!
