Grand royal parade

Dynamite the Clown makes 53rd consecutive festival appearance


The name Rudy Grahek probably doesn't ring a bell with many, but mention Dynamite the Clown and watch their eyes light up. Dynamite carried a case that said, "60 years of clowning ", as he made his way down Cedar Street in Saturday afternoon's Grand Royale Parade.

Clown band returns with a BANG!
