BYE BYE BUSKERS
WE HAVE wrapped up the Buskers Festival for another year and would like to thank everyone involved in the promotion, advertising, sponsorship, support and operation of the event.
Kids’ Day was a great success and the change of venue was welcomed by just about everyone.
The adult comedy nights were likewise well received and many people seemed to think the standard of busker overall was at an all-time high.
The biggest highlight of the week was when one of the Dutchmen, Jean Michelle Pare, attached to a tandem jumper from Coffs Skydivers, parachuted in to the Sunday market show.
Everyone had their own favourite but a lot of people liked The Flying Dutchmen, Popeyed and Son and Sports Suzie with Clown Loto getting plenty of mentions.
Plenty of them also got out and about to see what Coffs has to offer in the way of beaches, parks and the hinterland.
It was probably one of the worst weeks of the entire year for rain, but with indoor venues being available, apart from Friday night at Twilight Markets, organisers managed to get every show completed.
As the last of the buskers leave Coffs, plans are already under way for next year. John Logan, Event Organiser
