Acrobuffos set to soak Old Phuket Town

PHUKET: Renowned street artists Seth Bloom and Christina Gelsone, better known as The Acrobuffos, are headlining the entertainment set to take over Old Phuket Town on December 17-19.

The comic duo will be performing as part of the first-ever Phuket Street Show Festival, which coincides with the Patong Carnival this month.

While the Acrobuffos bill themselves as “laughmakers, street players and knockabout philosophers”, it is their interactive “water balloon gladiator fight” that has won them top reviews – and spared very few onlookers from a soaking.

Set in the heart of Old Phuket Town, event activities will be held on Thalang Road, Krabi Road, Soi Rommanee, Queen Sirikit Park and at the Phuket Thai Hua School Museum.

Entry to all festival activities will be free of charge.
