Last weekend my husband and I headed out to Churchill Square to see the Street Performers Festival. This is a yearly festival with performances of varied content from all corners of the world gathered together to entertain "busking" style.
When we arrived it was sunny and an expected high of 23 Celsius. Not too warm or cool, just right. But throw in a day of mixed weather, and you just don't know what to expect so you come prepared for everything. At least it wasn't windy, though we did have scattered showers. But the show did go on!!
I really admire the skyline view of the art gallery like the one above. It is so unique. Shortly after it opened I paid it a visit to explore this one of a kind architectural masterpiece which is a work of art all of its own. A perfect venue for a gallery, it is. To see more of the gallery visit Adventures in a Not So Unusual Life (another of my blogs) and here.
The roses smelled amazing!
The city hall features a wading pool complete with fountains for those hot days when the public just need to cool off. Kids love this! In the winter it becomes a public skating rink.
Note, the sky is beginning to cloud over.

Rain is imminent. We ducked into the nearby mall during one of the showers but we did brave out a few brief sprinklings to enjoy acts like this torch juggler above.
All in all it was a very good day spent in the best of company with refreshments like green onion cakes (love them!) and excellent entertainment.
