Magic at DaiDonDen

In Sapporo we have a yearly street performance festival called DaiDonDen. Lots of street performers from Sapporo and some invited performers from other parts of the country do a lot of entertaining things for two days. Last year it rained and out of the normal 15 performance spots, only 3 were usable, so almost all performances were canceled. This year the weather was great, though maybe too hot for the performers.

札幌に毎年だいどんでんという大道芸イベントがある。札幌の人でも、遠くから来た人でも、色々なパフォーマンスをしてくれる。去年大雨でパフォーマンスの15ヶ所の中の3ヶ所しか使えなかったので、沢山のパフォーマンスがキャンセルされてしまった。今年の天気が凄く良かったがパフォーマーにとって暑すぎたかもしれない。

One guy I know was doing magic at the street performance festival, so I went to see his performance twice. I also saw a lot of other entertaining stuff. There were no other magicians at the festival, though a lot of people did do some magic during their juggling or balancing acts (or whatever their specialty might be).

知り合い1人が大道芸のマジックをやっていたから、僕が2回も見に行った。他にも面白いパフォーマンスを色々見た。マジックは他にほとんどなかったがマジシャンではない人でもちょっとだけマジックもパフォーマンスの中にやっている人もいた。
