KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT)-- Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey's presents "Zing Zang Zoom" in February but the Volunteer Early crew got a special visit from the Ambassador of Laughter, Dave.
The Ambassadors of Laughter are a special group of clowns that come before the circus to get kids excited for the big show. They make stops throughout the community sharing educational demonstrations to kids of all ages.
Tuesday, January 25, 2011 the Ambassadors will be at the Blount County Library at 10:00 a.m. They will perform and read a story to help promote reading in the area. It is free and open to the public.
"It's a way to get out in the community and to share the magic of the circus with children that might not make it to the show" says Dave the Ambassador of Laughter.
The show comes to town Thursday, February 24th through Sunday, February 27th. For tickets and show times visit http://www.knoxville.org/events/19325125/
Also, if you want to meet an greet with the clowns and learn a few tricks; then show up an hour before the show for a free event!
