Sulphur Springs seeks performers for Farmers Market

By Scott Harvey

Sulphur Springs – Sulphur Springs City Manager Marc Maxwell is looking for street performers, also known as buskers, to help liven up Downtown.

You're familiar with the individuals who work only for tips and spare change, such as guitarists, violinists, saxophonists, or even mimes and jugglers. Of course genuine entertainment would be preferred.

Maxwell would like these types of people performing at the city's Farmers Market on Main Street.

Speakers set up along Main Street already provide recordings of various tunes, but Maxwell would like some live entertainment on certain occasions.

The city of Sulphur Springs doesn't have a specific ordinance regulating buskers.
To reiterate, the city is seeking performers that will play for tips. They are not looking for contractors.

Each Saturday, the Sulphur Springs Farmer's Market is open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. More information is available through the city manager's office at 903-885-7541.
