Clown Team History

 

The Detroit Fire Department Clown Team has a long history. The team has its roots in the Firemen’s Fund Field Day Event where they originally began performing skits to entertain crowds attending the Field Day baseball game. The Clown Team was officially formed in 1938 Firefighter Larry Scarpace. The team started with just 7 members.
