Clowns left Holy Trinity Church in east London Sunday after a service. Each year on the first Sunday in February, clowns from across the U.K. gather in Dalston attend a church service in memory of the clown Joseph Grimaldi, an annual tradition since 1946. The service moved to Holy Trinity Church in 1959, and in 1967 permission was given for the clowns to attend in their costumes. (AKIRA SUEMORI ~ Associated Press)
