This is your big chance to dazzle the world

FOR the first time ever, locals are being invited to take part in the prestigious All Day Spectacular at the Coffs Harbour International Buskers and Comedy festival.

The day, which is usually reserved for the professionals, is being opened to the public to add some colour, vibrancy and theatre to the day.

Event organiser, John Logan, said that it was a great opportunity for local talent to get a start.

"Every year I have heaps of locals ask if they can participate. This is their year," he said.

The All Day Spectacular, to be held on Wednesday, October 3, is one of the biggest days in the festival itinerary, and will see the closure of Harbour Drive CBD to all traffic from 9.30am to 4pm.

Anyone in the community with a special talent is invited to come and test out their acts on the droves of people that will swarm the street.

Whether it be singing, dancing, juggling or even blowing on a gum leaf, you are eligible to gain a place on the street busking.

All you need to do is give John a call and he will allocate you a spot.

What's more is that if you're good enough, you may be invited to perform in Sawtell on the Saturday.

"This is a great opportunity," John said.

"There will be three areas that the professionals will be performing in, but the locals will be situated up and down the street in front of the shops. Ideally, we'd like a Busker outside every shop.

"We're happy to have anyone who has a special talent.

"We've already got The Sax Man who will be out the front of Jack Simmons Menswear."

The International Buskers and Comedy Festival grows every year and consistently attracts top talent from all over the globe.

Highlights at this year's festival include The Wau Wau Sisters from New York, Project Bounce from Canada and Lance Spring from Amsterdam.

There is even a rumour that Australia's Got Talent's Michael Pope will be in Coffs scouting for potential acts!

So why not get in contact with John and put your talents on show.

To secure your spot in the City Centre at the All Day Spectacular, all you need to do is call John Logan and his team on 6652 8266 and fill out the appropriate paperwork before September 20.
