Our company put on a large event for a community in Chula Vista which offered games and entertainment this past weekend. Judy did an amazing job! One of our other facepainters was a no-show, which meant that the line was non-stop for her. But she handled it with no problem! We received many compliments from various residents and were so happy with Judy's talents. We will definitely be in touch if we do this event again! Thank you Judy :)

Had such a great experience with Party Karacters. They have so many fun options and activities to do with the kids! Our party was for my son’s 4th Birthday. We had Spider-Man come and he did SO MUCH! Balloon twisting, hero training, parachute, tug of war! The kids were LOVING IT! Our performer was great, he was a perfect Peter Parker (Spider-Man) I hope he reads this!!! We all thoroughly enjoyed you!! If you are looking to make your life easier for your next party, just hire Party Karacters!!

I love Sparkles! (And I'm usually not crazy about clowns!) She's such a kind, easygoing person, and the kids love her bubble show and balloon animals. She is very reasonably priced, responsive, and reliable. One of our library's favorite performers!

I can't not say enough wonderful things about Donna Hofstee and All Ways Entrainment. As an event coordinator I have used her company exclusively for the past 8 years. Every entertainer is the epitome of fun and professional, providing hours of entertainment to our guests. All ways entertainment provides the best entertainers in the business and I highly recommend them to any group looking for top notch entertainment.

Silly Twister was the perfect entertainer for a children's party with four to 12 year-olds. Our theme was Star Wars and she created laser sabers, shields, helmets, characters and many more fun objects from balloons...would definitely hire her again!

Thank you so much for your help with our event! The Fairy you sent to us was AMAZING! Joanna more than exceeded my great with the children, kind, courteous, beautiful and all around magnificent. She really helped create a day that our family will never forget. My daughter was so amazed by her and was literally shaking with excitement! My daughter has been hugging the card that the fairy brought her with her gift all night! The fairy put on an amazing show and all the children really loved her. She also posed with EVERYONE at our party to make sure we got great pictures of the children with her. Please pass on the word to her that we were so happy to have her at our event. I am definitely going to send and e-mail to everyone who attended our party with your contact information so they keep Karacters 4 Kids in mind for their next event! Keeping that many children entertained and happy for 2 hours is not an easy task! The balloon twister and face painter did a great job as well especially for adding them at the last moment. They made sure we got the full hour and that all the children had a chance to get their paint done. Thanks again and I hope to work with you again in the future!

Sarah was not only professional, but also very friendly and easy to work with. Her readings were definitely a highlight of our Halloween party! Many guests have come and told me her reading was more of a therapy session than entertainment.

I can not say enough about Joanna from Little Miss Twist and Friends! She literally SAVED our party! We were hosting a 3-year old birthday party outdoors when 15 minutes before the guests arrived it started pouring! We were forced to move the party indoors and we were running around in the midst of total chaos when our doorbell rang. Joanna arrived early and with a huge smile. She didn't mind how nuts we were, she just went right upstairs, set up and was ready to entertain 25 children under the age of 5! She was stuck indoors for the duration of the party and in one spot with a crowd of kids around her the entire time. She was so amazing with the kids and never once seemed under pressure or tired from the chaos. I asked her several times if she needed a break and she always said she was just fine. I was amazed by her patience and pleasant personality even around all that noise! Joanna was so sweet and so kind to the kids and if it were not for her being there, I'm not sure what we would have done to keep all of those kids occupied and happy! She did amazing face paint for every single kid that attended and then she brought out her amazing balloon creations! All of the little girls were beyond thrilled to show off their Elsa balloons and she even catered to our theme of Monsters University with a great Mike Wazowski twist! I enjoyed having Joanna at our party and I'm so glad we hired her for our event. I will definitely pass her information along to all of my friends and I know she will stay in business for a long time! Hire her - you will be so glad that you did! Thanks for making our sons 3rd birthday a VERY memorable day!

    When I say “Professionalism” I mean that not once have we ever received a complaint from patrons, nor from our working staff. Ryan brings the restaurant to life and has been an asset over the last several years. During that time my team and my guests have come to respect him as a talented magician and incredible guest advocate. His style is laid back and does not come across as pushy to the guests. He is very funny and our guests enjoy his visits to the table and some even come in to eat just to see him perform. I have on many occasions fielded compliments from my guests on Ryan’s behalf. He is a great guy that works for the house. He is open minded and receptive to new ideas, and more than once has stayed later than his shift because we were busy and he knew he could impact the guest experience. Ryan is friendly and professional and this comes across on every shift. I know that when Ryan is on the floor, my guests will have a great time. He is an asset to any organization.

      I'm a clown for all parties, etc. I do balloon art, magic, face painting, games, and jumper. I charge $195.00 for my funny bone special. Children will laugh out loud. Sometimes, I even amaze myself with what is possible. I can make the unbelievable believable. Puppets seem real as if they come to life. It just flows like water, and the inspiration and fulfillment is wow. Thank you very much. Paulette Clark
