Proud of East Texas: Kornpop The Clown

By Joan Hallmark

David McCullough likes to tell people he's "just somebody who's full of hot air." But his "hot air" in the form of balloon dogs has brought smiles to children around the world.

McCullough, or Kornpop the Clown" as he's known, works out of his shop "Celebrations Flowers & Gifts" in Chandler. Although he's never performed in a circus, Kornpop performs at store openings and birthday parties, and through his Balloon Dog Ministries, Kornpop has performed on five continents. Perhaps Kornpop's biggest audience was after a major earthquake in China, where men, women and children lined up by the hundreds in refugee camps for his balloon dogs.
