This year marks the 12th year that Buskerfest has been coming to Toronto. I noticed that this year the event footprint has expanded all the way to Yonge Street on Front Street where last year it ended at Church street. It has also grown by an extra day to make it a 4 day festival.
This event is held at the heart of the St. Lawrence Market Neighborhood and is in support of Epilepsy Toronto.
I managed to catch the Fireshow on Friday night and here are some of the images I got:
Close-Act makes a return to Toronto from the Netherlands, bringing with them - XL Insects. Here they are attacking Elvis.
Mayor Rob Ford showed up to give a speech and to light a fire for Jack Layton
Pancho Libre from Mexico
Pyromancer from Netherlands
The Red Trouser from USA
The Fireguy from Toronto
FlameOz from Australia and UK
The Pogo Dude

The festival runs until Sunday night. Hope you catch some of the acts before the show closes.
