Slideshow: Clowns on Paddleboats


Drivers passing through Julia Davis Park on Thursday afternoon got a surprise when they looked out their windows: clowns. On paddleboats.

As part of National Clown Week, members of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad Idaho Gem Jesters went on a paddleboat excursion in the pond at Julia Davis Park.

Though the general public were all invited to join the shenanigans in full clown regalia, that didn't happen. Six sisters of the red nose flew their colors and did their thing anyhow.

It looked a bit like David Lynch might jump out of the bushes and yell "Gotcha" at any moment. Drivers did their best not to swerve from the shock.
