The sixth annual Congress of Latin American clowns took place this week in Guatemala City, where more than 200 professional clowns gathered to exchange tricks of the trade.

The conference - which included clowns from El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, and the U.S., among others - was sponsored by the union that represents workers in Guatemala's entertainment sector.

Much to coulrophobics' dismay, the event included both happy and sad clowns.
