Sugar the Clown ready for action.

One of Lake Country’s newest residents is Sugar the Clown. Off duty, Sugar is known as Kelli Ingram.

Sugar is a sweet, white faced clown with years of experience in Vancouver.

Ingram was looking for a different lifestyle, when she moved to Lake Country two months ago. When not working as Sugar she is a mixed media artist.

She spent years developing the character of Sugar into a friendly, engaging clown who puts children and audience members at ease.

Sugar interactive, her special skill is balloon tying as Ingram has put in countless hours of practise tying balloons.

Ingram got into clowning by accident. Prior to clowning, Ingram worked with special needs adults, and then in teaching. While living in the Lower Mainland, the occasional chance to be in the movies came Ingram’s way as an actress.

While on set someone asked her about becoming a mascot—it was her first inkling of what clowning was like.

Through a series of chance introductions to other professional clowns, Ingram developed Sugar and put her metaphorical hat in the ring.

Since then the closely knit clowning community, including the wildly popular Vancouver clown Korki, have helped Ingram become a professional clown.

Sugar has worked at countless corporate events, from parties to trade shows, where she stands at the booth tying balloons and drawing the attention of the customer.

This year you’ll find Sugar at the Oyama Days Parade.

To hire her for a children’s birthday party or corporate event, contact Sugar through her website,
