World of Wonders Sideshow Party

World of Wonders Sideshow Party

Dozens of Baltimoreans kicked off their new year with an evening full of sword-swallowing, knife juggling, strongwoman and magic acts at Illusions Bar and Theater.

It began with a gathering in the Illusions Bar, where guests could catch up with friends and mingle with a myriad of sideshow artists.
