Small scaled circus event, and not quite juggulo themed. How does one promote?

My boyfriend and I were sitting around one night listening to an extensive amount of circus music I had the thought... we totally need to put on a circus-themed party. We found and booked a venue with a good friend who owns a bar, booked a few performers (jugglers, contortionists, musicians, all close friends). The date is set, place booked, now for the promotion which will make or break the event.

I need some help in copy for invitations and promotional art. Does anyone know resources to old school invitations to carnivals / circus / events with a feel from the 1920s-40s? We are creating a facebook event and posters and want to stay as close to theme as possible. Any sites or references to help us with promotional gimmicks (totally grass-roots and on a low budget), ideas for the night itself (we will have rubber-duck pool with drink specials written on the bottom of ducks, a makeup artist to work on tips, scary-clown art posted)... would totally love to see what the metafilter community would recommend! Sorry for the horrible grammar.
Thank you so much in advance.
