Clowns from around the country, gather each year to remember Joseph Grimaldi 1778 -1837, considered to be the father of the modern day clown.

Grimaldi was so popular as a harlequin dress clown, he become known throughout the clowning fraternity as 'Joey' a name by which all clowns are still known today.

Grimaldi was the first to use the make up to extenuate his facial expressions. He was an actor/clown in the theatre, never working in circus. Sadly his career was cut short due to illness and retired early.

The service in the church is only for clowns, but they arrive in costume and it's a visual and playful event outside the church.
