The Circus Firemen have performed around the world and this weekend downtown St. Catharines was their stage.

The Australian duo, who go by the names Angus and Matilda, did five shows during Niagara Buskerfest.

"We've had a great time," Matilda said. "It's been quite busy."

The pair explained to the crowd, between juggling fire and hamming it up with each other, that they only make money from donations.

"It creates a nice relationship between the performance and the audience," Matilda said.

Riley Finn, 8, enjoyed the show — he was part of it. The St. Catharines resident was all smiles as he helped out by holding props and spraying the Circus Firemen with a water gun.

The act was one of more than a dozen to entertain audiences on the streets during the free three-day event.

Cally Rouse and her family attended the street festival Sunday to take in the acts and enjoy the carnival atmosphere.
