Why Our Community Loves Clown Town

Lenard Z : Autism Eats

"I took my 13 year old son to Clown Town this year as I do every year. It is a favorite activity and we always have fun! My son has autism. Some people can tell and others cannot.

The ride operators could not have been more caring and helpful. He was  brought to the front of lines when extended waits were becoming  problematic. He was given extra time to get situated on rides when he was apprehensive and patiently helped off after they concluded. And in  every situation we were treated with respect!

You had a great carnival crew this year and I appreciate it!  Well done!"

Johanna Buoncontri: Andover Mums

"Clowntown is a beloved community event in Andover. Clowntown began as a  small fair over 60 years ago in 1956 and now spans over 2 days in  downtown Andover. Started by ANDONA as a fundraiser to support Andover’s  youth, Andona’s name derives from AN: “Andover” and DONA: latin for  “give”. ANDONA has created it’s own sense of community amongst it’s  members who dress in cute clown attire while managing the event - after  many months of planning."  Read more...
