Busker auditions continue at The Forks today as entertainers of all ages try to win over the judges for a coveted busk pass.
Hundreds of potential buskers, including artists, musicians, unicycling clowns on stilts, jugglers and other performers started honing their skills on Friday.
“Busker auditions are a great way to build excitement for the summer months at The Forks,” said Paul Jordan, chief operating officer of The Forks. “We always see a tremendous amount of excellent-quality entertainment, and we love to have that fun energy the buskers bring to the site year after year. It’s a tradition and visitors love it.”
Those who win a 2014/15 season busk pass will be able to perform at the various indoor and outdoor busk stops throughout The Forks. Judges, The Bros. Landreth will offer constructive feedback to artists and entertainers during auditions.
The event is free and open to everyone today from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
