Ibla Buskers 2014

October 27, 2014

Ragusa Ibla, a baroque gem lying in the Val di Noto, in the southeastern part of Sicily, is a live showcase of circus performers when each year the Ibla Buskers Festival is held.  This year marked the twentieth year since the festival started.  For four nights in October, there were street performers all over town carrying out their talent and skills with an audience which reached the thousands over the period of the festival.  Some of the many performances included acrobats from various countries, a fire handler, an artist creating music on crystal glasses, storytellers,and  musicians.

The colors of the baroque buildings in their golden hues at night under the glow of the street lights added to the whole ambience and sense of magic!
