Hundreds of Peruvians celebrate Clown Day in the hope of gaining official recognition for the holiday

With their unmistakable red noses, extravagant shoes, colorful outfits, and unique makeup, hundreds of clowns on Saturday gathered in the streets of Peru’s capital to mark Clown Day, a holiday they have sought for years to gain official recognition from the government. Every May 25, Lima hosts a colorful parade that includes awards for the best costumes, makeup, routine, and improvisation. (AP Video by Cesar Barreto, produced by Mauricio Muñoz)
