SPOT THE STARS
Spot the Street Entertainer: Whistler daily street entertainment continues through the week at various village venues (Village Square, Town Plaza Gazebo, Upper Village, and Village Common), in conjunction with sponsor Tourism Whistler.
Between noon and 5 p.m. daily, you might spot the Whistler fashion police (Michelle Bush) stopping innocent visitors to offer slightly questionable fashion advice and faux pas delights. Jeff Collins, dubbed "Renaissance Man," is a magician and fire-eater providing flaming visual delights to add zest to the heat wave week. Meanwhile "Whistlers favourite fool" Sand Northrup presents juggling in all shapes and forms to keep the young ones entertained and parents giggling.
A cabaret for families happens Wednesday, July 24 from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., at the Town Plaza Gazebo with an array of sketches from the above performers. Not to be missed; brings out the kid in you!
