It was the spring of 1974 when Park City's first Clown Day capered and wisecracked its way across the Park City ski slopes.  After a long winter, Park City's ski bums let loose for a day of dressing up, over indulging and basically having more fun than a barrel of monkeys.  In this final Park City story, Jay Meehan recounts that first crazy spring celebration.
