Now is the time. Now is summer. Now is PIT. Now is Cobblestone ball and Festival opening. Juggelers, jesters, dancers. Watch out for sudden entertainment!
Once again, we let The Cobblestone Ball at the City Square kick off this spring’s most beautiful adventure in Porsgrunn. And thus, what has gradually become an important tradition is underway. For 5 days, clowns and acrobats will turn the city streets and places upside down. For 5 days, unexpected experiences will give new colors to the city’s outdoor space. For 5 days, the city’s large and small stages will be filled with performances from different corners of the world.
PIT is a tradition in Porsgrunn; a tradition to go out on, a tradition to go home to, a tradition to invite out-of-town friends to join. And true to tradition, we offer entertainment on the very top shelf!
We open the restaurant on site at 17:00. Pincho Nation and various food trucks are in place, and it will be possible to get refreshments.
From 20:00 it goes hand in hand with different types of performances for young and old. We have invited artists from far and wide to create the good mood this evening. Majd el Malouk from Lebanon and Norway, Emiliano from Italy, Belgian Teatro Pachuco, Canadian Les Dudes and Bellali Astria from Mexico and Norway.
When the French Transe Express plays with Poupées Géantes, it is the adventure that comes to visit. Three giant dolls in fantastic crinoline dresses glide through the crowd. Like porcelain dolls in an old music box, they enchant the audience with a mix of original compositions, popular songs and opera arias. The tin soldiers abound around them. The drum vortices mix with the crystal clear voices in a playful musical exchange… ..
… And of course the evening ends with a big party fireworks. This year’s PIT fireworks are specially designed on the occasion of the anniversary of fireworks master Olav Hanto.
