The 5th Annual BurroFest will take place this weekend in Mancos in Boyle Park and throughout their downtown. The event will feature a Burro obstacle course, live art creation, kids activities and more. In this interview LP McKay with KSJD News speaks with TJ Zark and Stephanie Hallum with the Mancos Creative District about the event, and the role the District plays in the community.

LP recently moved to Mancos from Austin, Texas, where they worked as a Case Manager for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and in HOA property management where they were fortunate to learn many different styles of communication and creative thinking/problem solving. In their time away from work, they watch a ton of movies (spanning all decades, nationalities, and genres), and tries to listen to one really good album every day.
