MARCH 13 UPDATE: EVENT CANCELLED It's rare when an event combines tons of talent and a bit of creative enterprise.
Those are the ingredients required when dozens of live performance acts from across the U.S. converge for the 5th annual Eustis Buskers Festival on March 28.
Busking, entertaining in a public place for donations, can add charm to intimate settings, like downtown Eustis. The city's free festival will provide buskers a bigger stage, while giving residents and visitors a day full of live entertainment. The acts range from musicians, dancers, comedians, jugglers, mimes, living statues, artists and acrobats who compete for a $3,000 grand prize, and a $1,500 People’s Choice Award.
The family-friendly performances will take place at downtown Eustis “busk stops” from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Grand Finale, featuring top performers from each division, will take place downtown at 6:30 p.m.
