SUMMERTIME STREET ENTERTAINMENT
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., youll never know quite what to expect when you walk along the strolls. Places to watch out for are the Village Common, Town Plaza Gazebo, Village Square, Mountain Square, and the Marketplace.
This weekend Tourism Whistler will unleash the juggling antics of Brothers From Different Mothers, the white-faced n quiet clown Cirque Alexander, and take part in a drum circle with Rhythm Sprits Ron Stelting. See mywhistler.com for a full schedule of appearances.
