Lawrence Busker Festival (day 1)

Downtown Lawrence

El Gleno Grande will be doing a horse act without a horse. Mentoc the Mentalist will bend a spoon with nothing but his mind. And MamaLou Strongwoman will rip through a phone book before you can tear even a single page.

It must be time for Busker Fest in Downtown Lawrence.

Street performers will take over many of downtown’s corners from Friday through Sunday for the third annual festival.

Expected performers include fire dancing, juggling, sword swallowing, magic, fire eating, musicians, hula hoop dancers, and chalk artists.
