The Circus Arcanus was a travelling Muggle freak show that boasted the "world's most complete congress of human oddities." It consisted of a daily street parade, which the organisers promised was "worth coming miles to see," and would amuse both young and old.
The Circus Arcanus visited New York for two weeks in 1926, starting on 29 November, and ending with a "spectacular" final show at 8PM on 13 December. Two parades were held on Friday 3 December, at 3:15PM and 8PM, respectively.
