PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The Portland Rose Festival is looking to hire a few funny people.

The annual city-wide celebration is in need of some clowns for its ninth annual Character Clown Corps.

The Corps performs in the Grand Floral Parade and other Rose Festival events.

Organizers say no clowning experience is necessary. All applicants will go through a three-day intensive workshop with Rose Festival artistic director and Clown Prince Angel Ocasio.

Interested funny people have until Mar. 1 to submit an application, with auditions to take place on Mar. 8 and 12.
