The new Wichita City Council ordinance allowing buskers, or street performers, to entertain pedestrians for tips in Old Town, Delano and along Douglas Avenue looks like a big hit, judging by the delighted reaction of people at the March 31 downtown gallery crawl.
The sidewalks showcased local talent such as “Magic Melton,” one-man band Jord “Jayrodin” Peck and some 18 other performers who kept the crowds entertained with music, magic and comic patter.
What fun. As one patron noted, “It makes things come alive.” And that’s precisely the point.
