INTERNATIONAL quality acts from the Edinburgh and Glastonbury Festivals will display their fiery and acrobatic skills in a feast of family entertainment at the Street Fest on Thomas proudly sponsored by Beckmans Green on Saturday May 10.

Leading the line-up is stunt clown "Cosmic Colt'' Sandberg, whose talent with gunpowder, high stilts, fire and exploding fruit has seen him work in Hollywood films and circuses and mentioned in magazines and newspapers across the globe.

Colt Sandberg, who is also organizing performers for the Beijing Olympics, is one of six high standard performers hired to  to delight the crowds in the 4pm to 9pm event at Noosaville.

 "I did my first international street performers' festival in Noosa four years ago and I've done everything I could to get back here again,'' Sandberg said.

"The pace of life, the friendliness of the people, the community spirit, obviously the beaches and the food are hard to beat.''

Other performers include fellow fire-twirler Miss Malia and Scoot, a talented busker who won the All-Ireland Buskers competition in DunDrum, Northern Ireland and the 2007 people's choice award at the Hip Hat Hooray Street performers Festival in Newcastle England.

Lovers of physical comedy will enjoy Hans and Eva, a gymnastic duo who will perform their highly skilled trick sequences packed with apparent near misses, hopeless miscommunications, language goofs and lucky saves .

Complementing the performances will be a street full of stalls offering a global range of cuisines for $10 or less per serve.

Streetfest on Thomas, organized by the Noosaville Association, will also showcase the range of fine foods available Noosaville and the wider region.
