Circus Street Performers in Quebec

So I was going to post about day 3 in Quebec, but as I was watching these videos again and laughed I thought I have to share them now! The first one is of a little aerial stunt. I won't explain much because...well performances are so much more fun when you don't know what is going to happen.

They are speaking mainly French, but they do say things in English as well. My French is no good or I would translate for you, but I think that you don't have to know everything they say to understand what they are implying. They had us entertained as well as captivated.

The second one is a much better trick, but as I told you before the lead up to the actual act is a lot of fun to watch. Especially because I knew it made my McKayla uncomfortable. In the middle of the act you can hear my little monkey saying, "Wowowowow!" Very cute. In the end I gave the kids some money to go and give to them, actually they came running to me asking for some to give away, I am sure I would have anyway. They definitely deserved it for making me laugh and giving me some great footage to keep for the memories!

I believe at one point,I don't think I recorded it, he tells us his name and age and I thought at that moment, "I am OLD!" I don't remember a 17 or 18 year old looking like that! Then, I thought to myself, "No I am too old to think they are cute!". sigh. Now I feel creepy. Ewww... Anyway I hope you enjoyed the videos. It was much more electric in person, but I think I was able to capture some of the essence of what it was like.

  1. Those were great. Makes me want to visit Quebec. I'd have to take Shane, my son, with me. My french is so rusty that it hardly moves.
    Thanks for sharing.
