Painting It Red Looks Good on Vincennes

We're not even done with the Red Skelton Festival and it's another success. That says a lot for the organizers of the various events spread out over a week in and around Vincennes. While moving more and more events to the Red Skelton Center on the VU campus may seem a little "unfair", we have to remember that the Red Skelton Center is now will be in the future THE fulltime center promoting Red and the Clown experience. And while the parade of clowns still needs to be downtown, not everything needs to be downtown. Besides, when you walk out the Red Skelton Center and look across the parking lot you can almost see a little guy clowing around on the porch of the home he was born in. Next year will be the 100th anniversary of Red's birth. It should be a great festival! Too bad we didn't start the Red Skelton Festival a few years earlier.
