Lawrence Busker Festival Returns for 10th Year

It will be a weird weekend in Lawrence. The Busker Fest is back for its 10th year.

The Lawrence Busker Festival began a decade ago. The three-day extravaganza is back in town this weekend. The Busker Festival features circus acts, magicians, musicians and all manner of unusual – and even downright weird -- performances. KPR’s Tom Parkinson spoke with the festival’s producer, Richard Renner to find out what’s kept the festival going strong for so long.

That was Richard Renner, organizer of the Lawrence Busker Fest.  He was speaking with KPR's Tom Parkinson.
