Introduction - Village Idiots

For lack of a better categorical label, the term "Village Idiots" is meant to imply those geniuses and authentic idots alike who comprise the freaky community of outsiders and non-mainstream color known as clowns, mimes, jugglers, firewalkers, etc. To qualify for this section you must essentially first fail to qualify for any other section. Simply being a busker is not an automatic qualification since buskers include leading arts/entertainment categories. Placement in this section is purely on the editorial discretion of Colorado Arts Net.
