One of the biggest events in Kingston’s summer calendar is undoubtedly the Buskers Rendezvous. This year there were over 30 performers and from July 9-12 downtown Kingston was transformed; the streets were closed for fire eaters, acrobats, magicians and spectators were awash in face paint and balloon animals. For those who have never experienced Buskers I have made a list of tips so you will be ready for next year.
Make sure you have lots of change
Bring kids with you
Participate! Some of the acts get spectators involved.
Laugh, clap and shout – the performers love it
If you’re from out of town make sure you book a downtown hotel so you’re close to the action
