Well, the Busker’s Ball was a huge success!

There was no rapture, it barely rained at all, and many people came out to support the dozens of busking acts that filled downtown Northampton with sound, color, movement, and merriment! Thank you so much to everyone who made this event such a success-  the performers, the organizers, Anne at the DPW, The Northampton Police, Thornes, and everyone who came out to support the buskers!  Here is a selection of  photos from the day, enjoy!
