My name is Aaron Phelps, the one and only Cow Town Twister (Shooz The Clown - optional). I'm always studying the balloon industry's latest and greatest, adding dynamics, details and designs to my already huge balloon menu. There aren't many balloon artists who implement as many sizes, shapes, and colors of balloons as I do. Parties that hire a balloon 'factory' that turns out the same impersonal designs, multiple times per party are not exciting. I am always nudging the next guest in line to choose from sculptures and or fashion, including hats, wristbands, headbands or other accessories, their favorite accessory, alien, animal, piece of furniture, princess, popstar, superhero, sports-hero, zombie, favorite place, favorite toy, favorite food, or favorite TV or movie character out of balloons. I can even make you out of balloons. I am a substitute teacher for the Olentangy, Westerville, Upper Arlington and Worthington districts. I have a B.S. in Math from The Ohio State University, but love to teach elementary P.E. I have also been a driving instructor for nearly 20 years so you can be assured that I am a professional, capable and dependable balloon man, who can relate to all ages.

Myself, the owner, our employees and their families where very pleased with the services that were provided by Awesome Family Entertainment for our company winter party. I must say they have the best Santa Claus I have ever seen. He was full of the holiday spirit and his wife knew how to interact with the kids. The song they sung for their farewell was a nice touch. The face painting elves were amazing and I thought elves were just good at making toys, but they can faceprint amazedly and play games very well. The popcorn machine was a nice touch in addition to the wonderful visual of the machine sitting on an old style cart, the smell of fresh popcorn was very refreshing and add to the flair of the party. The operator was very professional and clean cut. Everyone had a blast posting photos and video's of each other dancing around with the snowman. Again, everyone was very pleased with this company! EXCELLENT JOB

Steven was great right from the start! He worked with us before the event to create a special donut balloon w/bowtie for our donut food truck grand opening. He was also very responsive in scheduling as well as answering questions we had. The day of, Steven was there the entire day making the donut balloons and many other animals for the kids (I saw hats and swords too). We were very pleased with his work and would recommend him to others!

Mark was very professional with the my interaction that I had with him and then he was totally goofy for the kids. He had a packed house of 17 7 year olds and he held their attention for the entire time. Lots of good jokes, tricks and ballon animals. Thanks Mark for making it a great birthday!

We asked Santa and Mrs Clause to make an appearance at our family christmas party on 12/22. They were on time, passed out gifts we had bought for the kids, took individual and group pictures with kids and talked to each one of them. I would recommend them!

My presentations are perfect for the business professionals looking to improve their presentation skills. I offer keynote addresses as well as highly interactive workshops in which the attendees present their material which I videotape. Then, we take a look at the tape, so that the coaching member can see themselves as an audience sees them. I then break down the presentation and provide feedback on what the speaker is doing correctly and in what areas the speaker can make some improvements. I have delivered this keynote address and conducted workshops for insurance professionals, CPAs, manufacturing companies, nonprofit organizations as well as college students in film studies, MBA programs and entrepreneurial studies. My clients include Materion Brush Performance Alloys, Gorman-Rupp Industrial Pumps, the YWCA, The Hylant Group (business insurance), SSOE (architects and engineers), The Collaborative (architects and engineers), SUNOCO, Burger King, Holiday Inn, Gilmore, Jasion & Mahler, LTD, Lutheran Homes Society, Calphalon, Bowling Green State University, The University of Toledo, University of Central Oklahoma and Owens Community College.

While I am not sure if I have attended a party with this Santa, I will say we happened across him while going into a store today. I had noticed the car in the lot, and thought neat idea. Well, as my children and I were walking into the store, this jolly elf called over to us, and asked if they were being good, and if their rooms were clean. I must say, my two were awestruck at the possibility that Santa really IS watching, and you never know where he might pop up to check! Thank you for the impromptu visit. My two are still jazzed. I had to find your site and post some praise.

  • Reynoldsburg, OH 43068


I am the “real deal” Santa. I have been making appearances as Santa Claus around New York and California for nearly 30 years. Being Santa is not just a job for Michael, it’s who I am. On a daily basis, I draw smiles and excited gasps from children and adults alike; it does not matter where I go. I don't need a costume, and I get recognized even in the middle of the summer. The beard is real, the belly is real, and the twinkle in the eye is real because I love and enjoy the smiles that Santa brings to people as they remember the spirit of Christmas. You will not find a more genuine Santa. I believe in the birth of Christ, and always tell the story.
