Buskerville 2 – Good Tunes, Good Times, Hope for Buskerville 3 by Roy Berger – August 1, 2011 – Cornwall Ontario

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.

If you visit this event it will make you wonder why we don’t do this every weekend during the summer! Farmer’s Market, Sounds of Buskerville, Headliners at the Bandshell, Beautiful Lamoureux park by the water! Couldn’t hurt downtown busines!

Congrats to Chaz and co. on Buskerville 2011. Last minute hitches aside, things seemed to go very well and was just plain fun to play at.

Well I would like to stop your negative train in its tracks. I did go to City Council . I did fill out the proper paper work. I hand delivered a letter to every single business ( not everyone was there , I put the letter in the mail box). The letter was concerning the event and street closure. By doing so I was granted the street closure. We did not contact you beause we just forgot. That was it that is all. No ego trips. Just a busy schedule. Isnt that enough.
