While the venues and the performances are sure to entertain, a large concentration of fun happens on the street walking between venues. This is where you may walk past a ghost, a fairy, a fireman, a zombie, a man dressed as a hotdog or a can of soup, and many things you can’t understand or even imagine without seeing it with your own eyes.
