History of the Waterloo Busker Carnival: 1992 - Year 4

This year's carnival took place over four days from August 27 - 30, 1992, featuring a free BBQ of turkey sausages from Elmira Poultry. On Friday, Kids Day had everything from face painting to juggling lessons, and of course, buskers.

New for this year was the introduction of the now familiar Vaudeville Show on Sunday afternoon. This family event highlighted every busker act and proceeds from the hat went to the not-for-profit carnival to help provide funding for the following year.

Comedy classics (silents and shorts) were shown outside The Princess Cinema on Friday and Saturday evening.

Randy Warren chaired the carnival this year.
