Weddings & Clowns
08/20/2008Back To Blog
Working in the catering dept. here at the Fairbanks Princess Riverside Lodge I get to be a part of a lot of different events. My favorites are the wedding. It’s always the mothers of the bride who are freaking out about every tiny detail, I try to calm them down and let them know that I have done over 200 weddings and our team is very good at adapting to any problem that might arise (we once had a wedding cake tip over). Once the wedding is over and the reception is on its way, the mom who has been freaking out on me for a week is all of a sudden my new best friend, it’s the most amazing transformation. One of the funniest evenings here at the lodge was when we held the World Clown Conventions end of convention ball. It was a night of great food and dancing, it was very strange serving dinner to 175 clowns all dressed up and ready to make people laugh. I was called to a table to get what I thought was some clowns complaint when I got close to him he squirted me with water from the flower on his lapel. It was four days of hilarity……what a bunch of clowns.
