Broadway the Clown is a Bowling Green treasure, appearing at events on campus and around town, performing at parties and sharing his unique talents with children and adults alike. He delights his audience with his juggling, balloons, and gentle spirit. Of course, he had training from the Clown College experience with Ringling Brothers and 42 years of practice. Full Story here.
Pictured with Broadway are the runners-up of our My Kid Rocks Contest: Ella, 3 year old daughter of Courtney and Jason Wiesbrook and Clay, 2 year old son of Kelli and Lucas Tinsley.
The cover photo was taken by Lindsey Boler of Red Elephant Studios in Scottsville. Lindsey also supplied the photos for the Breastfeeding promotion and the Fatherhood promotion.
