This bombastic, iconoclastic indie circus and music showcase rises again Easter weekend following a two-year cryogenically suspended faux-burial.
Featuring the best of local, regional and national talent, Bohemian Carnival carries on its tradition of interactive entertainment, saturating the senses with 5 hours of non-stop kaleidoscopic action, over 50 stunningly skilled beauties and barbarians, and as much decidedly adult flavorings as you can stuff into your soul.
Indeed, for this resurrection, feast your eyes, ears, and whatnot on the fine, featured creatures to the immediate right of this mumbojumbo.
