The World Clown Association held their 2018 conference in Minnesota this year. Lucky us! I've never been to a clown convention, but I wanted to witness the cool and interesting people that would participate. I attended their one public event and I learned that the clowns and the fans of clowns are a friendly, fun, and approachable group. It almost made me want to be a clown. Almost.
Their goal is to make people happy. Even the sad clowns. And they did.
