A relatively new event today, and maybe it was the threatened rain, but it did not bring a whole lot of people out. There were a lot of food vendors and one stage for performers. I made a video starting at around 2:00pm so I saw two performers – The Offbeats and the one man band Cale Crow. There’s a list below of all those who were booked to play. There were few non-food “vendors” but the axe throwing guy seems to show up at every event in Town. People must like it but so far I’ve not seen anyone succeed other than the person operating the show. The food vendors were all on King street – apparently they were not happy being relegated to Second Street for the Busker festival.
Also as usual, although there were scattered vendors West of George/Third, most of the action was between Division and Third.

The video gives an idea of what the event was like – the music was better live than the video might indicate – but I find that it’s always better live. Note that the official (unpublished) program indicated that the first band (in the video) was The Mainstreet but in fact it was The Offbeats – sorry about that.
