Super creative and talented balloon work - kids were so thrilled. (Grown-ups too.) Nick was kind, friendly, personable, and (key here from past experiences) exceptionally non-obnoxious. Just all-around great. Highly recommend.

Dawn Marie was amazing! She did balloon animals and face painting for my little guy's first birthday. She appealed to a pretty wide range of kids. The youngest to get a balloon animal was 8 months and the oldest was 6. The adults loved it too! I was worried that the facepainting would be a mess but the paint she uses doesn't rub off if the children touch their faces. I hugged several kids with their faces painted and nothing rubbed off on my shirt. This was my first time hiring any kind of entertainment for a party and it was a great experience. She was really great with the kids and it added a special touch to our party. I will definitely use her again in the future and I would highly recommend anyone else to do the same.

What an amazing show! He was so good and his magic tricks were so impressive even the older kids and adults were left confused and couldn't figure out what to do. He also does balloon twisting and is very good at it. I would definitely recommend him!

We hired Aunt Nora for balloon twisting and face painting for my daughter's first birthday party. She arrived on time and was very polite and professional. She was quick and was able to attend to all of the kids.The kids enjoyed her and everyone felt relaxed. I could not have asked for a better experience. I will definitely be using Aunt Nora again. She is wonderful!

Mr. Firu was booked to entertain 15 children and their parents. When the day came, after all the day of party cancellations we ended up with 5 children and parents. Mr. Firu still put on a show to entertain the adults and the birthday boy. He made sure everyone left happy with a balloon. He was very understanding and professional about the very small audience. I would book pocket circus for another event if needed. The grand finale was great and my 4 year old was very amused by helping with the magic. The adults we laughing and enjoying themselves also. My kiddos balloon sword disappeared after Mr Firu had already packed his gear but he still made my son 2 more balloon swords before leaving the party. It was a very small, honestly disappointing turnout but Pocket Circus made it unnoticeable to my son because of the showmanship delivered. Thank you

Special Occasion Events came though for me on a Sunday when I couldn't find anyone to deliver balloon bouquets for 15 tables for my daughter' baby shower not only did they match the colors perfectly they also found me a photographer at the last minute. Rick was very responsive and even showed up to ensure everything had arrived and was set up. Very professional, great pricing and excellent customer service! I will definitely use them again for all my event needs!!

We hired TwistiCity for balloon and face painting. They exceeded our expectations! We had a TON of kids and they worked for 3 hours straight from the minute they walked in until the minute they left. They were amazing with kids and their work is impressive! Several adults came up to me to comment about how great they were with the kids and the great job they did! You will not regret hiring them! I will again in the future!

Charlene did an excellent job for my 1 year old's birthday party - she transformed our basement into a party wonderland for kids and adults alike!! My family enjoyed the candy displays and her decorations and balloons!! We will definitely call upon her services in the future - highly recommended!! Specifically, she took my idea and materialized it, attempted to be cost conservative where appropriate and even picked up items from rental company without additional charge!! I was so impressed!!

Steve was a pleasure to have at our party. I asked for him to come mainly as a balloon twister but to throw a little magic in as time and balloon demand allowed. He switched back and forth between the two crafts as needed, and was entertaining throughout. Both kids and adults were impressed with what he made (Elsa, butterfly, lightsabers, bow and arrow, etc...). I would definitely hire him again and recommend him to others. Additionally, I realized after hiring him privately that we have had him perform magic at my public library a few times and he has been well received by kids, parents, and staff.

Zoltan with Bounce N Celebrations did an AMAZING job at my son's 3-year-old birthday party. We had about 35 kids between the ages of 2-8, and he was very patient, very professional, very engaging, and the kids absolutely LOVED his work! The glitter tattoos were the biggest hit, but the balloon swords and wands were not to go unnoticed - the kids loved those as well. Zoltan is extremely prompt and thorough. He got RIGHT back to me any time I called with a question or an update weeks before the party, he was very clear when he outlined what I should expect or needed to do, and he just made everything very simple and easy on my end. I felt in good hands and I could tell right away he was a reliable professional and person who I could trust. He is also very kind and reasonable and humble, and he is good with the kids. He didn't mind staying a little later so that some of the kids could get a balloon in addition to their tattoos, and when one child's balloon popped, he made another one even though the party was over and he had packed up all of his things. He didn't even bat an eye about it - it was his natural reaction to unpack and fix the problem. He was really perfect entertainment for our party, and we look forward to hiring him again. I strongly recommend Bounce N' Celebrations. Thank you Zoltan!!
