BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Fools and freaks took to Burlington’s Church Street as the City Arts Festival of Fools returned to the Queen City.

This was the festival’s 16th year in Burlington. The three-day event attracts hundreds of people.

This year, the festival had more than 20 performers, all of them spread out periodically along the center of town showing everyone their skills. The festival was created to highlight all the different kinds of talents Burlington has to offer and people who were watching said some of the things they saw were unreal.

“I think the diversity and creativity of all the performers and the fun that the kids have. All kinds of acrobats, jugglers, comedy,” Krissy Bergeron of Milton.

Organizers at the festival say they can’t wait to start planning for next year.
