Video: Clowns March in Mexico in Honor of Virgen de Guadalupe

Proof that the truth is stranger than fiction! This video, shot by Reuters, shows a big group of clowns in Mexico City on parade to pay tribute to and honor the country's patron saint, La Virgin de Guadalupe. La Virgen has been in the news a lot lately, and it hasn't been because of Christmas if you know what we mean.

Around 200 clowns joined the annual parade, and then entered into the Basilica where they heard a mass in honor of La Virgen. If church had been this cool when we were kids, we're pretty sure we would have enjoyed it a LOT more!

About this author

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
