Word is that the annual Clown Follies and the Red Skelton Clown School scheduled for June have both been cancelled this year. There hasn't been enough pre-registration for the two projects to move forward.
What happens to the rest of the Red Skelton weekend? Nothing according to the schedule, but the lack of lots of extra clowns roaming the streets those days will make a difference and it won't be a good one.
2013 is the 100th anniversary of Red Skelton's birth in Vincennes and to have less of a celebration than in the past seems wrong.
WWRD? "What Would Red Do?" I bet he would smile, put an extra twinkle in his eye, and move forward in a positive fashion making the most of what was left.
Let's do that too.
