On Saturday June 9, 2018, a good number of the people of Cobourg came downtown for the annual Busker Festival. There were 9 official performers and a few others as well as many vendors. At around 11:00, the annual “walk a mile in her shoes” fundraiser for Cornerstone also happened but since some of the advertising said a later time, I missed it. I heard that it had more people than previous years. A stroll along King Street around noon with a camcorder resulted in a good sample of what one would see at the event. I caught Police Chief Kai Liu helping with a family photo and managed to see three separate “buskers” as well as the Premiere Dance group.
Note that these buskers, like most others, get “paid” by money thrown in a “hat’.
Here is a list of the buskers:
- 3M Dance Works
- Premiere Dance *
- Nathaniel Rankin – Canadian Champion of Magic
- Troy Sexton – Rhythm Works
- Andy Giroux – Limited Edition
- Les Soeurs Kif-Kif *
