Welcome To Victoria!

Though he's generally dressed in white he's one of the more colorful characters performing on the Inner Harbour Causeway in the summer season. This is Plasterman, a living statue whose mime artistry causes more jaw-dropping amazement than any other Causeway act. I always enjoy watching people - especially kids - walk past him then do a double take. Passersby often gather in little knots discussing whether he's a person or a statue. Kids edge up for a closer look and, just at the crucial moment, Plasterman jerks into motion, inevitably causing squeals and giggles. With Plasterman, however, it always ends with hugs all round and visitors with happy memories of Victoria. Plasterman has a website you can visit by clicking HERE.

Plasterman and the Copper Cowgirl amaze me. I don't know how they can stay still for so long without their feet and legs getting tired and needing to shift. I see Plasterman's decorated his jumpsuit!! Love it!

Say is the bagpiper still playing on the streetcorner? I will forever think of Victoria whenever I hear Scotland the Brave.

Victoria is lucky to have such an active waterfront area. Plasterman has a good gig going.
