BYE BYE BUSKERS

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - YOUR SAY -

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
