Clowns Gather For The Joseph Grimaldi Memorial Service

Clowns in full costume have a meal before attending the annual Clowns Church Service at Holy Trinity Church in Dalston on February 3, 2013 in London, England. Clowns attend the service in memory of Joseph Grimaldi (1778-1837), the most celebrated English clown who was born in London. The service has been an annual tradition since 1946 with the attending clowns usually performing for the public afterwards. By Oli Scarff/Getty Images.
