|As the night falls early on the Cirque and the Tower of London, the excited feeling grows; not so much the magic of the early morning ritual as it is the feeling of the thinning veil between the spirit world and the human world. Shadows move around the circus grounds on their own signifying the increase of spirit activity and those keeping the spirits at bay are asked to step down and merely police ones that cause trouble for the employees. All the spirits were given warning by the Ringmaster that if they wish to continue to exist they will not cause harm to his employees.|
The area of the Samhain ritual is decorated with black candles with a large alter set-up at the edge of the circle. Every witch is expected to participate, while others are allowed to as well if they celebrate the holiday.
The Midway is taken over by the party while each tent is closed up for the night. Music reaches every corner of the Tower with music acts performing on a stage set up outside and lights run by the lighting designer of the Big Top. Tables are set up around the spaces with large Jack O'Lantern displays and beautiful silver candelabras lit only by the soft yellow glow of flames.
People who attempt to come to the party not in costume will be promptly knocked out with mental magic and dressed up against their will. A costume contest is announced from the main stage in a deep announcer's voice and everyone is encouraged to participate in the Flashbulb booth.
