All Hallow's Eve at Hairpin
All Hallows Hairpin Arts

A night of mentalism, mysticism and magic!

It is All Hallows Eve on a crisp Chicago night. The rustle of dead leaves and smell of freshly carved pumpkins fill the street. Halloween is the most mystical of times, the one night of the year when the supernatural seems commonplace. It is a night when anything seems possible.
