Last weekend I had the pleasure of participating in Buskerfest!
Our newest customers, Bling on King in Dundas Ontario, invited me to come and meet their clientele and introduce them to glamjulz… and what a blast I had!
The hospitable owners, Kathryn and Neil are very supportive of the Dundas community, and their beautiful store has been open for just a little over a year now. During the three days I was there, I think I tried food from every restaurant in town. It felt like this wonderful couple were feeding me every hour with something new and exciting. Neil even prepared me a platter with cheese from one of their neighbours, Mickey McGuire’s Cheese Shop.
The other part of the weekend I really enjoyed, was being outside with the Busker’s, because these guys really know how to put on a show. Busking is what they do, It’s their livelihood!
JUGGLING FIRE! EATING FIRE! JUMPING THOUGH FIRE! WALKING ON STILTS… THAT WERE ON FIRE!!!
You name it… they had it. Dundas Buskerfest was happening and the excitement was hot!
I was surprised to find out that many famous people we know, did a little busking early in their careers to raise money. You may have heard of Sting, Rod Stewart, Bruce Springsteen, Tracy Chapman, Tom Jones and even Benjamin Franklin (Possibly some kind of crazy kite show with a key and special lightning effects!)
I love Festivals! They get people out, get the community together, and put a smile on everyone’s face!
Next one for me, The Sound of Music Festival in Burlington, and I can’t wait!!!
See you there!
