EVAH was fantastic. The kids loved the different face paint designs. The two face painters were patient and listened to each child's special request, despite having a line that seemed to be never-ending. They were very friendly, worked diligently and made sure all of the kids left with smiles. Couldn't ask for more!!!

I have booked a lot of entertainers over the years for parties But George has been one of the best. He kept everyone's attention from age 1 to 88. Everyone was asking me where I found him. He was very personable and very entertaining. Everyone enjoyed him! I would definitely hire him again! If you were looking for magician George is the way to go!! Thanks

This was my first experience hiring entertainment for my children's birthday party, and Justin was extremely helpful and attentive to my wishes and concerns! He did an amazing job with the kids, providing a tight wire activity, juggling, and balloon animals! He is very personable and really made the party special. I will most definitely be hiring him again for future events. I couldn't be more pleased with my experience working with Mystery Circus Arts!

Jim, thank you so much for a great magic show this weekend, it made the party! My daughter and all her Friends loved it!!! I was worried that some of the children would be too young but I couldn't believe that you held their attention for an hour. Also it was very kind of you to spend extra time with a few of the children after the show, their parents appreciated it very much. I highly recommend to anyone looking for a great children's entertainer to use you. Thanks again!

Courtney Sell is not only a Caricaturist, she is also one the more professional artists that I have ever worked with. From the time she arrived, until the time she departed she was working super hard to create lasting memories for all the guests attending my wedding reception. When a few folks, still needed to be drawn, Courtney was asked to stay, upon which she gladly accommodated our request, and proceeded to draw my nephew & my sister in law in that time, and they still have not stopped talking about how great their pictures are. Many people will be heading to the store to buy frames to put them in. Everyone always does jellies, jams, and cookies as wedding trinket for guests. So cliche. Now a Caricature drawinga is a lasting, funny memory!

Eric with Live Balloons Party Entertainment is nothing less than amazing! I hired Eric for my daughter's 5th birthday party and I have nothing but great things to say. Not only were the kids impressed with the balloon creations, but even the parents enjoined them too! Anything you can think of, Eric can make. He made sure every kid got the balloon of their choice and even had time for a 2nd and 3rd balloon for each kid. Eric showed up promptly at the scheduled time and even stayed a little later than we agreed to make sure every kid had a smile on their face when he left. He answered all of many emails and was always available if I needed to speak on the phone. I would absolutely recommend Eric to anyone looking for a balloon artist and I will definitely be a returning customer of Live Balloons Party Entertainment.

I hired Niki for my daughter's Holy Communion Party. She was very professional and did a great job. All the kids....young, teen and adults enjoyed her work. Glitter tattoos were a big hit. She even did face designs that she did not have on her chart. A couple of kids asked their parents to hire her for their next party. I would hire her again.

We were absolutely thrilled to collaborate with My Dream Visits and Ironman for my sons fourth birthday party. Ironman arrived promptly on time and ready to entertain the day of our event. Despite the heat, Ironman did not complain once on one of the hottest days we have have experienced this season. They are locally owned and operated, and therefore much more trustworthy than other companies offering similar services. I highly recommend My Dream Visits.

I was planning a high school graduation party for my daughter and felt I needed some sort of entertainment that would appeal to everyone and make for a memorable occasion. One of my first ideas was to bring in a mobile photobooth to have people get pictures together. After researching this and thinking about it I stumbled onto the better idea of a caricature artist. My only experience was at amusement parks where I watched the artists work but never took the time or money to have one drawn. I found Emily Anthony on the net and corrosponded through E-mail. She was Awesome at the party! People who did not know each other began to talk and laugh among themselves. Watching her work and seeing the reactions from the people she drew when done was so much fun! It turned out to be a much better choice than a photobooth at less than half the price!

For the past 10 years or so, we’ve had the need for a Santa for 2 holiday events - at childcare center’s holiday party as well as our Christmas Eve open house. We’ve had some really bad experiences over the years (who knew Santas could be creepy). We lucked out 3 years ago when we found a real gem who really invested in making the kids happy, not just the adults. This year, though, he disappeared so we were really concerned that we wouldn’t be able to find another convincing Santa that would be able to engage with groups of curious kids and their parents. We used Thumbtack to put out our request in November and Keith got right back to us. Negotiations were plain and simple. Keith quoted us a fair price on the date we needed. We were lucky since it always so late in the season. Santa arrived on time m, ready to go. My wife likes to control the action at her childcare center and Santa didn’t skip a beat - he followed the action and was never surprised or flustered when kids would ask crazy questions. Utterly professional. This Santa won’t spoil kids dreams. He looks the part - you couldn’t see stubble, eyebrows or any other hair that would give Santa away. We’ve clearly found our new Santa provider and we are considering the other entertainment services and characters that they provide. From on discerning parent and caregiver to another — highly recommended.

Hello, My husband and I were very happy with the service provided by Balloons by Sarah ! She was a very pleasant and personable balloon artist ! Sarah provided her services at our Mother's Day Party. Sarah surprised me with a Happy Mother's Day balloon flower ! Sarah was so sweet and kind to all of the excited children who surrounded her and watched in amazement as she made amazing balloon animals, hats.... A few of the children made some special requests and Sarah was very attentive and creative in fulfilling their requests. Our little friend Erich enjoyed watching the musicians perform live. He enjoyed the music so much that he asked Sarah to make him a tuba. After Sarah created the balloon tuba Erich went on stage to perform with the other musicians ! lol I am an elementary school teacher and I was impressed how organized and creative Sarah was ! She engaged the children in conversation as she worked her magic ! Sarah worked very hard and there was no down time. The children kept coming back for more balloon creations ! All of the teachers and parents in attendance told us that Sarah did an amazing job. Several of our guests asked us for Sarah's business card. I encourage you to hire Sarah for your social event. We certainly will be requesting her services again. Margie and Alex Stanku

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does a fortune teller do?

A fortune teller offers insight into people’s past, present and future through private readings. Some fortune tellers read palms or use tarot cards, runes, or tea leaves to see into a client’s future. Other fortune tellers consider themselves psychics, numerologists and mystics who look for patterns and meaning in seemingly random events, such as stirred tea leaves or the draw of a tarot card. By interpreting what they see in the cards or leaves, fortune tellers answer their clients’ questions about their lives, such as who or when they’ll marry, whether they should quit their job, or whether they should have a baby. Tarot card readings are a particularly popular way of having your future told, because they’re such a familiar method of fortune telling. More importantly, you can guide a tarot reading by asking the specific questions that are most important to you. By interpreting the cards you’ve drawn, the fortune teller may give you new insight into yourself and help you make an important decision. For some people, fortune tellers are simply amusing, but for others, they offer helpful guidance and spiritual nourishment.
