Kickstarter Campaign is LIVE through Sunday Oct 9, 2011



UPDATE 10/9/11-

Our Kickstarter Campaign was funded last night–THANK YOU ALL FOR PLEDGING!  YOU make Halloween possible–bring on the ‘Circus of the 7 Dawns!!

UPDATE 10/4/11-

The Kickstarter Campaign to fund our 5th Anniversary Halloween Parade, “Circus of the 7 Dawns” is live for 4 more days.  As of 6:50 PM today, we are 32% funded.  Make sure to get your pledge in before Sunday–reserve your spot to march with the Circus and help fund the community we have been working five years to build.  Halloween in Austin is all the better for it and you can be, too!


KreweDCM has launched a Kickstarter Campaign to fund our 5th Anniversary Halloween Parade:

‘Circus of the 7 Dawns’

As of today, Sunday September 18, 2011, we have 10% pledged toward our goal of $5,500.  A $5,500 budget may seem outrageous, but the truth of the matter is this: parade permits, police escorts, and insurance do not come cheap!  Roughly 70% of that $5,500 budget goal goes directly to those necessary permits, police escorts, and insurance.  The remainder is there for build costs–puppets, clowns, banners, doubloons, carnival games, prizes, throws…all the things that will actually make the ‘Circus of the 7 Dawns’ the enormous spectacle it needs to be and Austin deserves to see.

If you haven’t yet joined KreweDCM as a 2011 member, please go now to our Kickstarter Campaign and reserve your spot to march on Halloween.  You will join KreweDCM, the Dead Music Capital Band, Best Best Best Friends Brass Band, Major Mayhem Marching Band, (and more!) for the only Halloween Circus event of its kind in the world!  Great Times Guaranteed!

ABOUT the Circus of the 7 Dawns:

The Mysterious Appearance and Disappearance of the Circus of the 7 Dawns

It has been said that every few years, once Autumn arrives, when days are still warm but the wind blows cool at night…if you turn your face to that chill breeze, take a deep breath, and listen closely you might hear the distant sounds of a far off carnival.  The cries of long dead beasts from exotic lands, the fleeting smell of sawdust, the snap of canvas and rigging…they come on the late October wind and anyone both wise and wary knows the Circus of the 7 Dawns will soon roll into town.  When the new moon dawns seven days from the end of October, from 7 dusks thru 7 dawns, the spectre grows stronger.  On the eve of Hallowmas, the apparition is finally visible and anyone brave enough to attend is amazed by the sights and sounds of the only circus of its kind in the world.  From the the Brass Orchestras, the Human Marvels, the Animal Menageries, the Midway, the Museum of Oddities and Freakshow, the Illusionists, Travelers, and Fortune Tellers, the Coterie of Clowns–all are there to perform one last time, reminding us all to enjoy each of life’s wonders while we still can.  At sunrise, the Circus of the 7 Dawns always mysteriously disappears…leaving behind only the myth and mystery that brought them in with the Autumn wind.
