BORON - West Boron Elementary School students and faculty got a bit of surprise when one of the circus clowns visited the school. The event took place on the morning of April 10th inside the multipurpose room at the school.
West Boron Elementary School Principal Robert Kostopolous called an assembly inside the MPR and students were led into the area by each one of their class teachers.
Boron Chamber of Commerce Events Planning Committee Chairman Anthony Espindola and CM Clown (who name we are keeping a secret) were also inside when the children arrived. Anthony welcomed all the kids and teachers to the event then introduced the clown.
CM Clown gave a big hearty Hi Ho to the students and teachers then she went on to perform a few of the clown tricks that will be a part of the circus when it comes to Boron on April 22nd. The entire event lasted about 1 hour. Mrs. Clown called upon two student volunteers who went up on stage and helped her by balancing a Peacock feather on their finger. Each volunteer student received a free ticket to the circus show.
Before Mrs. Clown bid a farewell to all the kids, she invited everyone (even the community of Boron and the surrounding area) to the raising of the Big Top which is scheduled to take place on April 22nd at approximately 9:30 a.m. The big top will be raised in the dirt parking area of the Wind in the Willows Pre-School which is located on the corner of Twenty Mule Team Road and Del Oro Street in the Desert Lake area 3 miles west of Boron. She also informed us that during the Easter Egg Hunt in Boron, there will be free tickets to the show which will be in random Easter Eggs.
Just a reminder, circus show times are 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. and you can get pre-sale tickets at Espindola Family Grill or Boron Flowers and Gifts. The pre-sale tickets are $7 for senior citizens and children 12 and under and $12 for adults. Ticket prices at the door will be slightly higher.
