Spanish Quarter Street Festival: Part III

This is the final post of photos from Sydney's Spanish Quarter Street Festival. To start from the beginning click here.

So you're wondering where all the food is. Here's a picture of some churros to keep you going whilst you enjoy the last of the photos from the Spanish Quarter Street Festival.

Churros. Like finger food donuts. With extra ridges to catch those sweet granules of cinnamon sugar.

And perfect for dipping into thick hot chocolate too.

I meandered amongst the crowds which were loud and colourful...

misfits

before heading back to the stage, lured by the haunting strumming of a Spanish guitar.

Carlos Perez entranced the crowd with his light-fingered guitar work. At times it seemed like there were two people playing the achingly passionate melodies.

But then was a burst of colour of movement with the dancers from Latin Explosion. Those head-dresses are awesome.

Sangre Gitana 1

This cute little kid must've been bopping away with particular energy, as suddenly he was plucked from the audience and lifted onto the stage to dance with this female.

He did a pretty good job too.

Capoerista performers extracted a series of ahhs and oohs with their fluid strength-flaunting feats.

So that was the Spanish festival.

Next stop: The Thai Food Festival

    oh wow what a small world! i went to highschool with the dancing girl in pink. In your second last pic the same guy jumped over my head when he pulled me up for a stunt at Mythos in Leichhardt.

    Hi Catesa - I'm glad you enjoyed them. It was lots of fun, and yep, I'll be working on the Thai Food Festival photos very soon...

    Hi Pickles - Heh. That is funny! I haven't been to Mythos yet. Sounds rather wild.
