Clowns from across Central American, South America and the Caribbean gather each year for three days in the country's capital city to exchange ideas and attend workshops.
Of course, if you were one of those kids who found clowns to be terrifying, this gathering could stir up all kinds of childhood traumas.
Among the variety of clowns in attendance are jugglers, a clown dressed as a soldier and even one dressed as a nun. Participants in the Clown Congress parade through the streets of Guatemala City before getting down to business.
