With the latest 4 day 'Gathering of the Juggalos' event in Legend Valley, Thornville, Ohio only a few months away (their 15th annual event, 22nd to 24th July 2015) it's proof that the Juggalo culture is something that is here to stay. The Gathering of the Juggalos was created in 2000 when Rob Bruce organized an event for all Juggalos, a concept long talked about by Insane Clown Posse.
The first Gathering took place in Novi, Michigan at the Expo Center and lasted for two days, with over 7,000 fans in attendance.

Even in the niche-ridden world we live in today where subcultures come and go like memes, some still have a lasting impact.
None more so is that present then with the Juggalos, fans of Insane Clown Posse who paint their faces like their heroes and, for this, are ridiculed by most people.

In case you are hungry for more here is some extra footage that didn't make the original film. Enjoy.
