It’s a chance to enjoy performances ranging from the bizarre to the truly unique. Festival Co-Conspirator (Founder) Richard Renner explains what the party is all about:What is a Busker Festival?The Busker Festival is a three day long street performer festival that’s based on a lot of similar festivals in the United States and Europe. They do a lot of what I like to call, “Useless skills” like fire-eating and sword-swallowing, contortionists, Pogo acrobats. There are also plenty of musicians. This year there will also be food vendors.&nbsp;" Tue, 07 Aug 2012 07:00:00 GMT http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2012/7/A-Festival-of-Performers-in-Lawrence/2503/
