Running of the Clowns

It was to be the 3rd Annual Running of the Clowns today, however, we knew the risks because of the clown attacks.

I was expecting some kind of turnout, but it was just me, my friend, and two clowns (one of which is the host and creator of the event).

We waited at the Memorial Park Gold Line Station in Old Town, Pasadena for about a half hour to see if anyone else would show up. I joked that we are lucky that the police didn’t show up. I spoke too soon…

We told them that there was an event going on today. The host explained to them that, considering the clown attacks, he insisted that anyone dressing up as a clown for this event must look family-friendly and NOT scary. Those are part of the rules anyway, but that had to be made clear this time so there wouldn’t be any trouble. The cops asked for their IDs so they know who they are in case other people report sightings of these particular clowns. Afterwards, we casually headed to Lucky Baldwin’s to hang out.
