Gala at President Snow's MansionEveryone in the Capitol knows that an invite to President Snow’s Victory Tour Culmination Party is a precious commodity. (In fact, rumor has it that a band of citizens who were trying to counterfeit the ticket were caught by Peacekeepers.) On the big night, denizens lined the gate of his mansion in the hope of a close-up glance of elite citizens like Haymitch Abernathy, Effie Trinket, Plutarch Heavensbee or Cinna. Some victors chose to enter via Snow’s secret underground tunnel and snubbed the crowd. But Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark took a moment to wave and smile at everyone.
Right at midnight, a Technicolor starburst appeared in the sky as a fireworks show started. For some, the extraordinary pyrotechnics proved to be a great distraction for more hijinx. What did Plutarch Heavensbee show Katniss, as they danced? Did Portia and Cinna come up with a honeymoon wardrobe for the young engaged couple from District 12? Expect a full report as CC brings you the best party coverage of this Victory Tour grand finale event.
