If the clown shoe fits, wear it

The Bangor Mall buzzed with energy Saturday. Cheerful chatter filled the atrium by Macy's. Before we even reached the edge of the excitement, we were greeted by a clown in bright white face paint and an orange wig. 

He introduced himself as Papi. His suit looked as if it had been colored by a pack of Sharpies, but he hardly stood out in all the hubbub. Everyone was dramatic. It was Klownfest 2014, the yearly event that pools together Shrine Clowns and their families from around the country to entertain and learn. On the schedule of events for the day was a balloon competition, a clown skit competition and plenty of laughs and smiles. Last year's event was held in Portland.
