- Woman dressed as a clown, seated in chair, smiling and laughing with a male clown, before their performance in the Three Kings' Day celebration at La Alianza Hispana, Roxbury, Mass.
Beginning in 1977 through 1989, La Alianza Hispana hosted a Three Kings' Day celebration, an important religious holiday for Latinos generally observed on January 6, twelve days after Christmas. The event was administered annually by Youth Development Unit of La Alianza Hispana. The Three Kings' Day celebrations at La Alianza Hispana included a reenactment of this event, sometimes with a pageant, party, and gifts. In this photograph, the male clown has a pencil in his right hand, which he was using to apply makeup on the female clown. The female clown has balloons in her hair and padding in her costume.
