Everyone seems to be in the "Lag B'Omer" spirit these days, and with Lag B'Omer just under a week away things are only going to get better.
However, in Los Angeles, Lag B'Omer preparations have taken on an added meaning this year: Introducing the Clown Costume Contest.
Boys, ages 6-12 have the chance of a lifetime to be part of the Lag B'Omer official clown brigade!
All they have to do is get dressed up as a clown, take a picture of themselves and send it in. The top 10 photos (judged by a panel of judges) will drive in the official Lag B'Omer clown car with the official clowns and come out with the clowns during the official parade!
With only 3 days left in the contest - which ends on Pesach Sheni - the pictures keep coming in. Which clown do YOU think should be one of the official Lag B'Omer Clowns? Leave your comments below!
Check out the official Lag B'Omer blog at www.lagbomerla.blogspot.com on the 15th of Iyar for a list of all winners!
