Samhain Masquerade Ball Event date: October 27th, 2001
Hosted by Barony of Bhakail - Philiadelphia, PA
Event details
Summer is over and the peasants have brought in the third harvest.  Now is the time of year where boundaries between worlds are at their weakest, and spirits roam the earth.  There is but one way to protect yourself and loved ones from the pranks of the wee folk:  don your best disguise and journey to Barony Bhakail for the first ever Samhain Masquerade Ball.

This magical evening will consist of dancing into the night to live music courtesy of the Bhakaili Branslers, bardic tales, tables for games and a board of scrumptious sweets and pastries.  Prizes will be given for the most fiendish mask, the most captivating tale, and the tastiest treats.  Extra points will be given for documented entries.  A dance practice will be held before hand for those who wish to warm up.

The site is dry, but the after-revel will be damp.  Location of the revel to be announced at the event.

Site Opens: 4:00 PM
Site Closes: 11:00 PM
