Clowning around at Floriade 2007, Canberra
Our holiday in Canberra
On our wanderings around the magnificent displays of flowers in bloom at Floriade 2007 in Canberra, we came across several different forms of entertainment. One of these was a clown who was engaged to entertain the crowds that came along to see the flower displays.
We arrived just as he was setting up an area for his act. I guess we stayed watching him for a good twenty minutes, perhaps longer. He was very slick and very funny and engaged the crowd watching or passing by in a wonderful way. He was extremely good at being flexible with his act and would quickly adapt to whatever was happening around him.
At the end of his performance he asked for donations from the audience and many people obliged. I was quite happy to add my little contribution to his hat as I felt that he lightened the day for me quite considerably. Not that I needed a boost in any way because seeing all those wonderful flowers on display was an amazing experience.
