Believe it or not, we are already more than halfway through August, and Summer is coming closer an end! The Seafair extravaganza has settled down, and boaters are trying to cherish their last water excursions on the lake. It surely does not feel like the end of summer with this warm weather, but if you haven’t noticed, lately, after 5pm, it has been rather chilly in Seattle!
Speaking of Seafair, we have our very own clown in the mix. For over 30 years, George Anderson Jr. has been participating with the Seattle Seafair Clowns. Although these clowns are known to be in Seafair, they also entertain thousands of guests at local parades, festivals, and concerts. This group is made entirely of volunteers, which undoubtedly portrays the passion of culture and entertainment among these participants.
According to “seafairclowns.org”, the group spends over 125 hours at Seafair alone to entertain guests. Travelling all over Seattle, they make extensive trips and efforts to make their presence known (just by looking at their online calendar from July, they range from 4-8 events a day during Seafair, lasting around 10+ hours a day!).
In addition to their local entertainment, the Seafair clowns participate in neighborhood community service. For those that cannot attend special events, the clowns make trips to hospitals, nursing homes, care centers, and charities just to brighten ones day.
The Seafair Clowns Foundation is a non-profit organization, and can always accept donations. You can show your support to this historic tradition by clicking the link below:
