What makes the Busker festival so special ? It is the people. Locals come down in droves to see international performers at their best. It is one of those events that people can enjoy for free or they can show their appreciation by putting some money in the hat. Sure the comedy can be a bit risque but it is street performing. Of course, the thousands of people that come down to see the shows are excited to see the night market and all the cool creations making this a great weekend for everyone. The night market that already attracts thousands of tourist each weekend share the stage for these two weekends.
