When people hear the word clown, many times images of Stephen King’s “It” or creepy clowns pop into people’s minds.
Well, Matt Clapp is a different kind of clown. He doesn’t have a costume, per se, as many people don’t like costumes, and the only thing he wears is a kid-friendly decorated fire hat.
Clapp enjoys making balloon animals for children and enjoys seeing their faces when they run off with one of his creations. He also enjoys doing private parties for children. He has participated in many charity events and shows his faith through being a clown by using Christian coloring books and other props.
