Step right up: the Seaport Village Spring Busker Festival is making its return to the San Diego waterfront this weekend.

What’s a busker, you ask? That’s a street performer and the festival will feature nine of the best street performers from around the world. The festival runs from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

There is a special “Buskers After Dark” performance from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday featuring a DJ, food and beer specials and busker acts best suited for those over 18 (adult humor, beer specials and insane fire tricks).

The festival is free but tips for performers are always appreciated.
