The annual Spring Busker Festival is taking place at San Diego’s Seaport Village on March 4 and March 5, featuring street performers showcasing their quirky talents. This year, the acts include sword swallowing, fire juggling, acrobatics and extreme hula hooping. Here’s a look at Busker Festivals of years past.
A hula hoop superstar, a man who can squeeze himself into a giant balloon and fire jugglers all have one thing in common: they’re among the quirky street performers taking center stage this weekend at Seaport Village.
The 11th annual Spring Busker Festival returns to San Diego’s waterfront landmark on Saturday and Sunday, from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m., a free, outdoor community fest showcasing the weird and mesmerizing talents of buskers, or street performers, from around the nation.
This year’s lineup of professional performers – nine of them in total – is certainly diverse and daring.
It includes Hilla Hula, a hula hoop extraordinaire who sometimes performs her act in Mission Beach and near San Diego Comic-Con International. Hillia can spin anything – from a single hula hoop to many at once.
