Nobody knows who it is or why it's there. It doesn't speak, juggle, or approach people. The clown is occasionally spotted holding balloons, but doesn't hand any out to others. It just makes appearances around town, occasionally announcing them in advance on its Facebook page.
Efforts to uncover the identity of the clown have thus far been unsuccessful.
While the elusive clown has creeped out more than a few Northamptonians, others are grateful to the mystery person for livening up what they describe as an otherwise boring town.
Are you afraid of clowns? Would you be if you saw one staring blankly at you on a street corner in your town? Or would you be grateful for the extra color in your day?
