On Saturday April 16,th 2011, children are invited to the McCormick Library for a reading trip around the world with Boo Boo the Clown. The performance starts at 1 pm and admission is free. Boo Boo will also appear in downtown McCormick, roaming Main St. between 10 am and 12 noon. These events are part of the Spring Bonanza festival and are sponsored by the Friends of the McCormick Library.

During the comedy/magic show at the library, Boo Boo and the children will “travel” to several faraway places including India, France, and the Pacific Islands. They will learn many fun and fascinating  things along the way. Their journey will end at the magical public library where Boo Boo, in hilarious fashion, will show the audience his favorite collection of books.

Boo Boo the Clown, aka Ron Yarborough of Laurens County, has been a professional circus clown for 25 years. He has performed in the Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey Circus and has served as the Chief Happiness Officer for the McDonalds Corporation.
