Edinburgh Festival 2016 – Street Performers

The Edinburgh Fringe Festival is over for 2016!
During the month of August you will find a plethora of street performers around the city centre plying their trade.   Juggling fire seems to be one of the more popular acts, (I always think that juggling fire in Scotland is rather optimistic, as it does rains a lot) but some are more daring juggling dangerous weapons including chainsaws and machetes.   Unfortunately I only had the ooomph to get out and take photos towards the end.  Below is a small gallery of the performers that graced the streets of Edinburgh in August 2016.

Interestingly something else happened! The middle of the festival a Saturday afternoon I managed to walk the length of the High Street without being offered a single flyer, even after making eye contact.  Many will call me a liar, but it did indeed happen…. perhaps they just though there goes the grumpiest man in Edinburgh?  😉
