Kite Day at New Brighton Beach

January 29, 2017

A bit turn out for Kite Day – this is just one half of the crowd. There were also buskers to be engaged as well.

Busker Zaktakular in a bit of a precarious situation! Don’t worry he didn’t fall.

Flame Oz Buskers

January 28, 2017

I caught the Flame Oz day-time act today at the Arts Centre. They are here as part of the Buskers Festival and also have a night-time fire act. Great to see the festival back on our streets again (it had been in the park for a few years since the earthquakes).

Circus Firemen – World Buskers Festival

January 24, 2016


Other than getting to one of the comedy nights (see Urzila Carson if you get the chance – she’s one very funny lady), I’ve missed most of the buskers festival (as days of it were rained out). I’ve always loved the festival, but have to say that since it’s been in Hagley Park and not the central city, I’ve not made the same effort to see it. For me, it lost something – as I really enjoyed the serendipity of turning round a street corner and finding an act about to start and finding myself drawn into their performance. Hopefully in years to come, we’ll see them back in the city centre again.

The busker festival is on again and I finally got into Busker Park to have a look. This is Ruby Rubberlegs – I caught her contortionist act today. I had to look away a few times!

Mario Queen of the Circus at Restart Mall today. He’s a funny guy and I’ve seen his act just about every time he’s come to the Buskers Festival.
