It's Showzam - Blackpool's Annual Festival of Circus, Magic and New Variety.
These Grannies (Granny Turismo) hurtle thought the streets on their shopping trolleys entertaining the shoppers with songs, jokes and dancing.
In the Winter Gardens are small side shows and this gentleman who cycles round and round playing his piano. We couldn't quite work out how he turned corners. He even had his own teapot for light refreshment!
The Wookey Hole Youth Circus were great free entertainment amazing and astonishing us with 'their juggling, magic, riding unicycles, roller skating and acrobatics.'
These young ladies were performing high above us on material ribbons with no safety wires.
They were indeed a highly talented group of young people,
swinging and throwing each other around.
We took the Wonder Tour and were treated to a comedy walking tour around the streets.
Street theatre which had us giggling and cheering at the ludicrous antics of the cast.
Click on the link above to see some videos of the shows. The ones we visited were free but there were also other shows, workshops and balls. There was plenty to do and see this week.
I also said hello to the sea and fed the seagulls with one of my 'failure' loaves. The gulls seemed to enjoy it and waited patiently for their dinner.
Our famous tower now has a new set of LED lights.
