Pique to Valley Listings Aug. 1-7



For the little kids and the big kids at heart, the streets are alive with the sounds of comedy, congas and circus capers. On Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 7 p.m., you’ll never know quite what to expect when you walk along the strolls. Prime spots include the Village Common, Town Plaza Gazebo, Village Square, Mountain Square, and the Marketplace. This weekend catch Max-i-mime, who started physical comedy and mime at age 13 at Moscow's Mirror Mime Company. Also performing is the "Jerry Lewis of Juggling", Reid Blestock . See www.mywhistler.com for a full schedule of appearances. And don’t forget the Farmers Market in the Upper Village every Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
