July 6, 2016: Pearl Street entertainers, Boulder


Boulder, Colorado, is an interesting city to visit.  An unusual combination of outdoor life, university town and lingering hippie culture.  One of the "must see" spots in the town is Pearl Street, a great pedestrian mall dotted with fine restaurants and shops.   Pearl Street is an extremely popular and busy place, especially evenings and on weekends.

As you might expect in a place filled with people, it's a magnet to buskers and street entertainers of all types.  Here's a few we saw during a walk down Pearl Street this past week:
