So many fantastic ideas! We're hosting a dark carnival/freak show themed party this Halloween with the Arlington Flow Arts Collective. We practice and teach hula hooping, juggling, baton and staff, flags, and other flow arts locally, so I'm going to invite everyone to bring their glow-y flow toys.

Instead of the classic circus colors, the color scheme is going to be black and white, orange, purple, and maybe some green. I have one pop up tent and one canopy to transform, a few generic Halloween decorations that I can use, and some styrofoam heads and things that can be turned into creepy jack-o-lanterns. We have a good size back yard that I want to morph into the carnival, and if our neighbors in the main house will allow it, I'd love to add a clown or jack-o-lantern walk through on their front porch. I plan to print out vintage and antique photos of sideshow freaks, geeks, and other performers, and DIY some signs and banners.

Here are some inspiration photos from my Pinterest board (chelsealikeengland:)

Since I think this is the longest running thread on Carnevil ideas, I thought I would add this here, that Gemmy has 2 "neon" LED signs that will be in the stores this year FUN HOUSE and FREAK SHOW (Target, Amazon, BuyCostume, etc.). Run 55-60.00. Same concept as Grandinroad's HOCUS POCUS sign last year and the Grandinroad and other stores' PALM READER signs selling this year.

Here's a link to the post I made in the 2017 Target thread with photos of the signs: http://www.halloweenforum.com/general-halloween/174273-target-halloween-2017-a-3.html#post2180945
