"A Smile is a terrible thing to waste!" said organizer - Debbie aka DaMissus the Clown of Springfield, Virginia "It's a way of changing the world - a little bit of fun at a time."
Hundreds of clowns participated during 2009's International Clown Week - in schools, libraries, and hospitals. They clowned around in malls, on the street, and even in grocery stores...all for fun, all for free.
Clowning around was observed in many countries around the world .
Again this year, the folks from Clown Resource Directory have joined the fun officially by hosting the National Clown Week website!
For the uninitiated, Clown Resource Directory is where the Internet meets the Clowning
(A directory of Internet resources for use by Clowns wanting to be better Clowns and people who want to be clowns)
