We hired Sam C. for face painting and balloon artistry services for our Community Fall Festival. The artists were both professional, kind to all the children, and created fantastic face paint designs. The balloon artist designs were so unique and often looked complicated. Absolutely what we were hoping for! We will definitely hire them again. Only suggestion would be for them to arrive and start set up 15 minutes prior to the event.

Michael provided amazing entertainment for the 40 (!) girls at my daughter's 13th birthday party. His magic show was fantastic and totally age-appropriate for girls of that age - not an easy age group to impress! He did lots of interactive tricks that they eagerly volunteered to participate in and remained an appreciative and captivated audience for the entire show. He also mingled with the guests and performed numerous "close-up" tricks after the main show. We loved him - a true professional!

Captain Allstar performed at our house for my son's 4th birthday party. It was awesome from start to end. First, scheduling was easy - a call to Captain Allstar himself and we were all set. He also mentioned that we should stop by his show at the Vienna Summer Concert on the Green (we did and it was a great time - Captain AS introduced himself and had our son on stage during the show). A few days before the show, Captain AS called to make sure of the time and to assure us he was coming (it can be stressful when your schedule the entertainment for your kid's party's this ahead of time and you haven't spoken in a while - we had no such stresses). As for the show - Captain AS car early to set up, and just hung out on the back deck while the kids all arrived and played. When the show started (mostly 4 year olds and some 7 yr olds with my daughter), he was a huge hit. My son did not stop laughing and pointing out the silly things that Captain AS did in his act). He is more goofy magic/comedy vs straight magic, which is what we expected and wanted. He had groups of kids on "stage", made my son the co-star of the show and made everyone laugh and have a great time. I should note that it was 92-93 degrees and really humid - and the show was in our backyard. He was an absolute professional. I really can't say enough about Captain AS - if you want a great show for young kids with no stress, he is your guy.

I cannot say enough about how wonderful Floyd's DJ services was! They were professional, paid attention to detail, kept the party live and got involved with the crowd. My husband threw me a 40th birthday party and they really added to the specialness of my celebration. Everyone commented on how wonderful the music was and they accommodated guests requests as well as my special requests. To top it all off, I had an all green affair and they had beautiful green up lights for me and the DJs wore green too. I thought that was so nice and thoughtful to dress the part. At the end of the night both DJs engaged in nice conversation with my husband and I as they were breaking down their equipment. I was well pleased with their service and am going to recommend them for another event later in the year. If you need a DJ, go with Floyd's DJ service. I promise you will not be disappointed!

I recently got married and used Sight & Sound Entertainment for our DJ services. I give them an A++!!! Tom was our DJ and from start to finish he was a pleasure to work with. Booking and planning with him was the easiest part of planning our special day. He was very professional and easy going. He offered great advise and made sure to work in everything that was important to us, even Karaoke. On our wedding day he arrived early to set up and make sure everything was perfect. Throughout the day multiple guest complemented us on the DJ. I would highly recommend Sight & Sound Entertainment to anyone looking for a DJ that is worth every penny!

Lawrence was fantastic with the kids. They followed him around and enjoyed his act tremendously. Lawrence was courteous, calm, patient, and dedicated. He took the time after his act to fold origami swans for every single child (we had 30 kids!) who asked him for one. He involved my daughter in the act with a couple of tricks including the finale, and asked her to help pick out volunteers. He came early and stayed late, and seemed to enjoy himself as much as the children did. He was kind enough to bring (his daughter's) bunny and the kids were thrilled with the live bunny, posing for pictures with it. (i don't think the rabbit was as thrilled but it only starred for a few minutes then retired to its cage because-- there were quite a few kids and even i was overwhelmed.) Everyone enjoyed the show. Before he started, he did "walk around magic" which is informal joking and magic with the kids, sitting on the floor, it turned out, in the end, rather than walking around. They gathered around him happily. In short, we were very pleased with our decision to hire Lawrence and highly recommend him.

Amy, aka DJ 'Zo, is outstanding! She was my wedding reception DJ on 6-17-2017. I was honestly nervous to hire someone who also has a full-time job, but so many affordable DJs are sleazy and/or put pressure on you to book. (As do the unaffordable ones). But back to Amy - she is an honest businesswoman that sincerely cares about her clients' events!! She worked with me to clarify my song requests before the event and make a few helpful suggestions. Music is important to me, and my event was perfect! My restaurant venue probably wasn't ideal for sound or dj-ing, but that didn't phase her. Amy hugged me when I walked in after a whirlwind wedding day and made sure my name would be pronounced right. It made me feel so good. DJ 'Zo is a great DJ. I am so glad I chose her and not some shady "entertainment company."

She showed up a few minutes early to alot time for set-up so it would not cut into the time needed for entertaining the children and I truly appreciated this detail. She came well prepared with various paint colors and numerous face painting options to satisfy a broad range of personalities. Her artitistic skills were definately evident in her work as her face painting looked very detailed and the colors were very bright. The balloon artist also did an excellent job creating life like pets, swords and just about anything the children requested. Both Jennabelle and the balloon artist were truly professional. I highly recommend her and her but I would definately hire her again. We were very please and had our expectations exceeded. Thank for helping us make our family's celebration so unique and fun!

Unfortunately, we had to cancel our order for our event due to budgetary issues, but we want to do business with DG Entertainment in the future, and Damien is great to do business with. We look forward to another time working with Damien, and will recommend DG Entertainment, as well as Thumbtack to other colleagues and agencies. Brian

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Are bounce houses safe?

Bounce houses can be safe if operators and parents take proper precautions. Before renting from a company, confirm they are a legitimate company and hold any licenses and insurance required by your state. Ask to see reports of bounce house safety inspections provided by third parties, to make sure the equipment is in good operating condition to prevent injuries. If the rental company does not provide a staff member to oversee the bounce house for the duration of the rental, make sure you are properly trained on how to oversee the equipment. The American Academy of Pediatrics offers these guidelines for parents to help keep their kids safe when using a bounce house:  

  • Follow guidelines for safe installation including anchoring. Position away from fences, greenhouses, branches, etc., which would be dangerous should a child fall onto them.
  • Consider limiting use to children 6 years of age and older.
  • Have kids take off footwear, eyeglasses and jewelry before playing.
  • Take sharp objects (pens, keys) that could cause puncture injuries out of their pockets and hands before playing.
  • Don’t let kids of significantly different sizes into the bounce house at the same time. Smaller kids can get hurt by colliding with or falling under an older child.
  • Heed the height and weight regulations of the inflatable.
  • Food, drink, bottles, glasses, etc., should not be taken onto the bounce house.
  • Supervision should be maintained all the time. Supervision means watching constantly, not just being in the area.
  • Do not allow children to push other children off the inflatable. If it is a flatbed, this is especially important to avoid broken arms and legs. If the bounce house is walled, don’t let kids bounce against the walls and crash into one another — this can result in collision injuries.
  • Don’t exceed the maximum number of children at one time in the bounce house.
  • Don’t let kids climb onto the outside walls. Flips and rough play should also not be allowed.

What is a bounce house?

Bounce houses, inflatable castles, moon bounces, inflatable slides and jumpy castles are all large-scale inflatable houses made for interactive entertainment. Commonly intended for children, bounces houses are made of PVC or other durable materials such as nylon or vinyl that when look like a house or castle when inflated. Rental companies deliver bounce houses to birthday parties, festivals, fairs and other events. The companies have industrial-grade blowers that fill the large structures with air to make them bounceable. A common size for a bounce house might be 15 feet by 15 feet by 13 feet. Bounce houses often have a flat, inflatable bottom pad and inflatable walls so that kids can jump and bounce without being hurt, along with a netting door and windows so that kids can see out and adults can see in. Bounce houses are suitable for both indoor or outdoor events, depending on the venue. For large events, rental companies often have a staff member who stays with the structure to monitor safety and keep it properly inflated. There are also wet/dry bounce houses with slides that you can hook up to a hose on hot summer days. A bounce house can be a fantastic addition to a party with kids, keeping them both entertained and contained.

How much does bounce a house cost to rent?

Bounce houses are a fun way to keep kids entertained during birthday parties and other events. The national average cost for renting a bounce house ranges between $160 and $200. Cost will be affected by the size, design and functions of the bounce house you rent as well as the length of the rental. A three-hour rental will likely cost less than an eight-hour rental. Many rental companies offer fun additions like popcorn machines or cotton candy makers, and provide packages with discounts on multiple items. Another item that you may want to rent with your inflatable is a generator to keep the bounce house inflated. Here are some examples of average inflatable rental costs, packages, and common add-ons that many companies provide:

  • Bounce house, 10x10x13-foot: $95.
  • Bounce house, 15x15x13.5-foot: $125.
  • Wet/dry slide, 14-foot: $150.
  • Wet/dry slide, 20-foot: $250.
  • Combo bouncer and slide, 24x10x13-foot: $140.
  • Combo bouncer and wet/dry slide, $175.
  • Folding chairs: $1.50 per chair.
  • 6-foot folding table: $8.
  • Snow cone machine: $45.
  • Popcorn machine: $55.
  • Cotton candy machine: $55.
  • 2300-watt generator: $75.
  • 3000-watt generator: $100.
  • $299.95 package: includes a 20-foot dual slide ($250), table ($8), 10 chairs ($15), and a popcorn machine ($55) — $29 savings.
  • $450 package: includes a double water slide ($350) and bounce castle ($130) — $30 savings.
