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.ย ย  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. ย  Unfortunately I only had theย ooomph to get out and take photos towards the end.ย  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.ย  Many will call me a liar, but it did indeed happen…. perhaps they just though there goes the grumpiest man in Edinburgh?ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰
