Having a ball at the ‘Night Circus’

Laurie Swope for The Boston Globe


The Boston Young Professionals Association celebrated its 11-year anniversary on Friday by hosting a masquerade ball inspired by Smith College grad Erin Morgenstern’s novel, “The Night Circus.” Guests were instructed to wear black, white, and red to the party, which was held at the Estate. Entertainment included a performance by a contortionist, Gina DeFreitas’s stylish stilt walking (above), and prizes for best costumes. Revelers at the affair included Abi Oyegun, May Namb­were, and Christian Mutaba, all of Boston.
