I was attempting to plan a block party for my sons 3rd birthday. For 2 weeks I'd searched for face painters and balloon twisters in my area but came up empty. My friend, in an effort to assist me, created a Thumbtack inquiry and James responded. Once James and I connected, he made it so easy for me to book with him and his team. He asked good probing questions to determine what my vision was and collaborated with me to make sure he would provide the experience I was looking for. James arrived early to set up and was ready to go before the official start of the party. The lady providing the face painting, her name escapes me, was wonderful as well. She was so patient and kind with the children and above all she produced wonderful work! James twisted balloons to the kids liking. I saw dogs, swords, belts, hats, etc. The kids had a blast and at the end that's what it's all about! I can't thank MerMan's Entertainment enough!
