Chester the Clown Brings Laughter to Del City Library

When you stop to think about it, clowns can do anything.  They can make animals out of balloons.  They can be clumsy with the greatest grace in the world.  Most importantly, they can change the gloom on young faces into smiles.

Come be entertained by one of Oklahoma City’s long-time favorite jesters, Chester the Clown.  Chester will be generating laughs at the Del City Library, 4509 SE 15th, on Wednesday, May 28, from 10:00 to 10:45am.  

Chester’s show is designed for younger children, ages 3 to 12.  Their parents may remember Chester from his appearances on children’s television in the 1980s.

“Chester the Clown is a local tradition in this area,” said Del City manager of library operations Melissa Weathers.  “He’s been entertaining kids and their families for a long time and he’s just as funny now as he ever was. 

“In fact,” Weathers added, “I bet there are several adults who are looking forward to his performance here.”

Start your summer right. Chester the Clown performs at Del City Library on May 28.
