Busking

Becky Hoops gets things rolling...

No that's not some bizarre bondage device! Where is your mind at?

That's Becky Hoops one of the many entertainers at last week's Victoria Buskers Festival. In a mere four years the event has grown from humble beginnings to one of the biggest events of the summer.

Reuban Dot Dot Dot... (See what I did there?)
Reuban Dot Dot Dot -- a former performer in Cirque de Soleil -- came all the way from Australia for the second year in a row and impressed with some high flying acrobatics.

The duo of Street Circus from Chicago (her)/ Montreal (him) (video below) were probably our favourites for their sheer exuberance and non-stop comedy bits. That giant hula hoop that the performer is rolling around in is known as a Cyr wheel. Personally, I would have vomited had I spun in it as fast and as long as he did.
