Just got word that I’ll be back at Bastille on Bishop for the third year in a row. This is the 5th annual event, and it happens in the Bishop Arts District in Oak Cliff on July 14 from 6-10 p.m.
They close 3 blocks of shops and restaurants to cars, and fill the streets with fun things to do. Lots of buskers (street performers) like me will be on hand, plus there’s a main stage for music. You can find out about all the events by clicking here.
It’s a lot of fun — last year it rained, but that didn’t stop the crowds from being very nice (and pretty generous with tips — I only stayed about an hour and a half last year and made about $50 in tips — pretty good money for a 12-year-old who just worked for a little over an hour!). The first year I went, I did even better on tips — and another juggler gave me a unicycle, too.
This year, I am thinking of going in clown make-up for the first time. I’ve been working really hard with Nic Rainone (Zerp), and I think I may try it. Hope I see you there!
