Cornwall ON – Bongos, guitars and drums were the sound event in downtown Cornwall yesterday. Dozens of Cornwall’s musical artists openly played their unique tunes on Pitt Street.
Small crowds gathered to admire the sidewalk performances.
Local pedestrian traffic was obviously higher, restaurants and stores were seeing action. Buskers raised money for charity.
Some musical entrepreneurs also had a hat on the sidewalk for themselves and that was good too. Local talent plunked strings and banged the skins, welcoming a day of warmth, smiles and being alive. I couldn’t resist saying thank you to all, by making the effort of dropping change into every hat.
Good to see business being drummed up.
