Busker needed for November 3rd event!!

A couple of talented people are needed to help draw attention to a new production vehicle on November 3, 2015 from about 8:00 PM to 8:30 PM.

We are bringing a group of automotive journalists to Vancouver area to market a new vehicle. During the day they will be driving it on some country roads, then they will go to dinner and afterwards be involved in some entertainment.

The event takes place on November 3, 2015 and we need to bring attention to the vehicle that will be staged in front of a mural in Vancouver…a short performance from about 8:00 PM to 8:30 PM. It is expected that the journalists will want to take some photos of the vehicle and either put them on their website or their publication.

I’m thinking maybe a living statue and a contact juggler however I am open to suggestions.

Contact me at 647 225 7163.

Many thanks
