Fancy Clowns – A spin on the classic clown/fool role, Fancy Clowns have their own antics and dances to entertain crowds at Carnival. They are dressed in baggy clothing with big red noses, wild hair, big shoes and often, white faces. They are predominantly seen in the Fancy Sailor band and show the beauty of the design of many of the original or old time masqueraders.
