It’s all fun and games at this year’s Halloween circus extravaganza… if you can survive the night, that is! Demons, witches, monsters and creepy crawly creatures will fill the evening with never-seen-before acts of aerials, acrobatics, burlesque, sideshow, and more. This adults-only Halloween horror spectacular is not for the faint of heart, but is filled with as much humor as it is with gore.
