You put your left foot in...

There will be plenty of reasons to hang about the city centre for the next nine days, but watch out for the flying knives. It's time for the Coffs Coast International Buskers Festival and, with 120 acts on the bill, there is something to suit everyone. Roving busker, Benny Boy, seeks approval from Rose and Natasha Moule yesterday during a sneak peak at his juggling show. This year's event also includes a contortionist, fire thrower and even a yo-yo act. The official launch kicks off today, while street entertainment takes place tomorrow in the city centre from 10.30am. Other events include performances at the Coramba Hotel and Woolgoolga Beach Reserve. The Jetty Family Fun Day will be on Sunday and buskers will be in and around the city until October 2.
