Halifax Busker Festival

Nova Scotia Part III

From Meat Cove, we made our way down to Halifax for the annual Busker Festival - street performances on the waterfront. Good thing because on the day we left, Meat Cove was rainy and cold and I would have
suffered miserably from cabin fever. We needed us a city fix and some entertainment.

Trampoline champions from the U.S.

Amazing, funny, adorable acrobats from Jamaica

A likable, hilariously funny fire-eating, sword stepping crazy man from Montreal.

A fire dance artist, originally from Halifax, currently living in Bali. Theatrical and sweet.

A tourist boat on the Halifax port.

A more humble but picturesque vessel.

We finished the evening with drinks and dinner at an elegant restaurant.
Just the icing on a gorgeous day full of live entertainment and our love for each other.
Cheers.

  3. I apologize for the shouting text: it doesn't show up in the draft this way and as much as I've tried to change it, it won't take. It's always something with Blogger.

    It WAS so much fun. One of the things that I loved about our vacation was that our entertainment was entirely live. The other thing we did was attend a play. It makes one appreciate the art of live entertainment.
