Samhain is a Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season the end of the Celtic year when the Holly King defeats the Oak King "The Bringer of Light" and the beginning of winter or the "darker half" of the year. We burn the Harvestman in honor of the fallen Oak King as a symbolic funeral. " Out of the Ashes he will be reborn."

Danse Macrabe
All Hallows /Flicker

Danse Macabre
The tradition of the Danse Macabre dates back to the Middle Ages, perhaps earlier, and many different theories exist as to what was its original purpose. It is a cross-cultural phenomenon, occurring in English, French and Spanish folklore and art, among others.
Some thought the images of skeletons dancing in the streets would intimidate Death so that no one would be taken away. Others thought it was to trick Death into thinking all the villagers in this particular area were already dead... and enjoying it! So there was nothing for the spectre of Death to do and He would fly on. Still others thought it a way to point out no matter if you are Queen or serving wench, Bishop or bastard, minstrel or milliner... eventually we all will danse the Danse Macabre.

Miles Smiles
 He began his career in circus arts with the Humboldt Circus, a student led circus and theatre arts club at Humboldt State University. There he rose to the ranks of Co-head Clown and led the circus into their Fall 2010 presentation of “A-Box-a-Lips Now!”, a pre and post-apocalyptic exploration of circus after civilization.
Upon leaving the Humboldt Circus, Miles Smiles, hungry for inspiration, joined the Freelove Circus as a clown for their Summer 2011 tour “On the Trail of Bigfoot”. The tour took him on a quest throughout the Pacific Northwest and Europe to find and capture the historic and legendary Bigfoot. The Europe tour had an astonishing impact on Miles and pushed him to go fully international.
At the start of 2012 he left his home destined for the far east to help spearhead the K-Town Circus, an international circus troupe specializing in fire shows, located in Kaoshiung, Taiwan. Miles spent the better part of two years in Eastern Asia honing his skills and performing as much as possible.
Upon returning home he quickly became involved in the Rainbow Family Circus and toured British Colombia, Canada.
He then traveled back to his circus roots in Humboldt to join the Circus Emporium Road Show, a circus sideshow and odditorium based in Arcata, CA. Miles Smiles was a clown and juggler for The Emporium's Winter 2013 tour to Texas and the southwest and stayed performing with them through 2014.
At the start of 2015 Miles Smiles moved to the SF bay area and has been performing and teaching circus arts there ever since. WEBSITE

En Garde Fencing
For hundreds of years, fencing has inspired the dreams of adventure for people of all ages. Who hasn’t imagined themselves with sword in hand, fending off hordes of enemies with a quick and daring blade?
Fencing is both a sport and a means of self-defense with roots that stretch back to medieval times and all throughout history. Ever since people could form metal into tools, the sword has had a place at our sides. Olympic fencing has become less a study of self-defense, and instead has changed with the times to become the fun and fast-paced sport of the present. Historical Fencing harkens back to the days when dueling was a reality, and self-defense was a must. Foam Weapon Combat is a quickly growing sport that is a safe and fun martial art for all ages.
