The 5th World Festival of Clowns opens in Russia’s city of Yekaterinburg in the Urals to welcome the most successful clowns from Germany, Switzerland, Italy, France, Belgium and Israel.
Russia is represented by Sergei Prosvirin, a clown with a saxophone. Prosvirin is a successor of one of Russia`s most popular clowns, Yuri Nikulin. The festival has no jury and no competition, with the clowns simply gathering to send people joy. Source; Voice of Russia, Image: flickr.com
