Conde Kieateen Teargon is a "756-month-old Sufi mystic from the land of Kookamunga," so he says. Teargon is widely recognized from his annual perch in the middle of the Utah Arts Festival; he can also be spotted from time to time on the No. 2 UTA bus in Salt Lake City. His words are few as he shakes a noisemaker and holds up an ornate cane, yet he always looks as dapper as a rainbow in his colorful, eccentric garb.
