Dancing in the Streets at the 17th Street Festival

The seventh annual 17th Street Festival was just the place for dancing (and singing, plucking, and fiddling…) in the streets. Unlike the 2015 festival, which offered a main stage for performers, this year’s event featured roving troupes of musicians and dancers who did their things among the crowds on 17th Street.

The high point of the show came when a diminutive performer joined the grown up dancers.

Perhaps banjo is more your thing…

Or, maybe you prefer classical music? One busker had you covered.

When all else failed, there were always bubbles…
