Wow! what a great little town. We went to see the murals and found a lot more. We came to the circle and saw a neat building. It was Toby's Clown School and Museum. Well, we had to check this out. Oh no, its Saturday and it"s closed. But wait there someone in the parking lot besides us. Its a nice old gentlemen who asked us if we wanted to see the museum, Oh yes we said. Then another car pulls in and it's the President of the club(clown clubs are called clown alley). We didn't know this, but it was explained to us. Well they are closed on Saturaday but, we got invited in. The old gentlemen we met was Toby the Clown. Between the two men we got a super tour of the museum and the whole story of Toby'd Clown School. It was a super hour we spent there in the "closed" museum and school. So far they graduated over 600 clowns. We really learned there is a lot more to clowning then we realized. See www.tobysclownfoundations.org .Thats Linda With Toby the Clown.
The reason we went to Lake Placid was to see the murals. There are 44 murals around the town. Plus many of the trash cans are painted in scenes. We purchased the mural book for $3. that tells were and all about the murals. We had fun walking around town looking for the murals. We saw many other people doing the same. see http://www.muralsoflakeplacid.com/ also http://www.visitlakeplacidflordia.com/
See when looking down the rows of flowers from both ends of the building how the rows seem to be straight in front of you.
