Flyer with information about The Mighty Burros of Manitou Springs puppet show. Image of sculpted clay burro head. Show is free for all ages at the Manitou Art Center Intemann Gallery on Tuesday, July 25th at 11:30am.

A show for all ages that uses four styles of puppetry, as well as music and historic photos to tell the story of the burros who helped build trails and boost tourism in Manitou Springs and the surrounding areas about 100 years ago.

"The Mighty Burros of Manitou Springs" tells the story of the amazing burros who helped build the trails to Pikes Peak, took tourists on rides to Garden of the Gods, and hauled tools and equipment for the roads that we still use today.

This 20-minute multi-media show uses four different styles of puppetry, music, and historic photos to illustrate this unique part of Manitou Springs history. There will be an opportunity for behind-the-scenes photos and Q&A after the show.
