(Portland, OR) -- If you like to clown around, the Portland Rose Festival may have an opportunity for you. They're looking for applicants to learn how to be a clown. They take part in a two-day workshop where they get a makeup kit, a clown nose, costume and learn various circus and theater skills. Clowns need to be 13 and older. They'll perform in the Starlight Parade, Junior Parade and the Grand Floral Parade. The application deadline is February 28th. Details are at Rose Festival dot org.
