Hundreds of colorfully-dressed clowns march towards the Basilica of Guadalupe to give thanks for employment and good health in an annual pilgrimage to Mexico's holiest site; Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

The Clown Club of Mexico has been giving thanks to the country's patron saint for more than three decades.

Cascaron the clown, says, "We come every year to give thanks to Guadalupe for the work she gives us, health and the marvelous gift of making adults and children laugh."

"I've come to say thanks for all the work I've had and good health, I'm not missing anything so I've come to say thanks to the virgin."

A clown in police dress ensured there was no funny business along the way. The march ended with a mass in the Basilica.
