After more than 30 years of magic, Fifi the Clown is retiring.

Her real name is Gayle Hasler Cook, but for 32 years she was the magic clown who made thousands of birthday parties from Logan to Cedar City memorable.

"I'm sure without the makeup on, I still will be having fun. And I'm going to be looking for ways to keep people smiling and laughing," Fifi said.

Before she retires, Fifi the Clown hosted a party to say thank you to all her fans.

"This is a big thank you to all of you for the many wonderful years," Fifi said. "We are just going to have fun today, okay? Who is ready to have fun?"
