The only clues I was given were that costumes are encouraged (as long as kept PG rated) and there would be a small bonfire and dancing. I always thought that a Wiccan Samhain ritual was more of a solemn event and this seems counter to that notion so any advise/wisdom would be appreciated.

My favorite (and first) public Samhain ritual was fairly solemn and intense for the ritual part, and around a bonfire.  Afterwards there was a potluck and some dancing and drumming and chanting around the fire.  (Apparently this was the first time dancing had happened, thanks to me and a friend.  But it was appropriate and appreciated.)

I like having some "decompression" time after ritual, especially intense ritual.
