Clown Fun Calgary May 21 - 24, 2009

Thursday May 21, 2009 was the kick off for the 2009 edition of Clown Fun - the largest Clown Convention in Canada - went from May 21 - 24, 2009. Lots of attendees, approx. 25% more Clowns attended than the previous year. The convention was held at Ambrose University College in Calgary, it really was a self contained convention in that they had the accommodations, the meals, the lectures, the dealers room it was all there. This years headliner wasn't even a Clown (go figure) it was a Magician, his name is Norm Barnhart aka The Amazing Normondo, he is an awfully nice guy, great lecturer, he is like the Energizer Bunny, keeps going and going, easily side tracked though but in a hilarious way, maybe it's part of his act. Edge Entertainment had a booth at the convention selling some Magic Tricks / Props, lots of people stopped by the booth - thank you to those who bought. The whole Convention was a huge success - next year it may go onto a Cruise Ship for the convention first time ever that would be great for everyone even the guests on the ship seeing all these Clowns, we'll see how the plans come together for that.
