Participating clowns convened at the organisation’s offices in the CBD to prepare to wow the crowd while raising a strong message against social ills.
Hundreds of people are expected to make their way to Burgers Park to take part in Feast of the Clowns activities. These will include the celebration of the City of Tshwane’s diversity and raising awareness of domestic violence.
The clowns said they were eagerly awaiting the event, as the occasion had become part of the culture of the city, where is had been taking place for decades.
Sakkie Kloppers, known as Sakumzi the clown, said: “Today we looked at the people who are going to be clowns in the event and we can say that the crowd will be in for a treat. There will definitely be opportunities for great and colourful photos to be taken.
