(NIAGARA FALLS) Up, down, and sideways. That's how the planning for this years St. Catharines Buskerfest has gone.
And now, it's going, going, gone all the way to Queen Street in downtown Niagara Falls. As the organization says, "Plans to re-stage the festival in 2012 appeared to be over."
The on-again, off-again antics have some buskers wanting to barrel over Horseshoe Falls.
On Thursday, Lyndesfarne announced Buskerfest Niagara, previously known as the St. Catharines International Busker Festival, will go ahead on Queen Street Niagara Falls over Labour Day weekend.
Buskerfest Niagara 2012 will feature more than 150 performances, vendors, special performances, and record-breaking attempts for the Guinness Book of World Records.
“Busker festivals have been gaining popularity all over Canada in recent years,” Kuntos said. “The newly revitalized Queen Street District is proud to be partnering with Lyndesfrane Theatre Projects to bring a great event like Buskerfest to Niagara.”
International world-class talent will adorn the streets of Niagara Falls for the first time.Niagara Falls Buskerfest
