Another Satisfied Customer for About Faces Entertainers!

"We appreciate you helping us find a wonderful entertainer at the last minute.  Apple Dumpling was very pleasant to work with, she was absolutely wonderful with the kids, our kids just surrounded her the entire time she was there so she was working non-stop.  We were glad we made the call to About Faces -  you guys made the entire process, from contracting to entertaining, a cake walk for us; it was so much easier then we had imagined.  Thanks again."   -Gwen, MD

"About Faces Entertainers always do a great job. The guests at our Dog Day Afternoon event could not get enough out of the caricatures and the face painting." -Kelly, MD
 
"I would say that both [Carrie, henna artist and Anthony, caricature artist] were awesome! They were on time and once they were set up they were very self sufficient which made my job very easy! I would definitely hire both of them back!" - Roger WIlliams University, RI

Everything was great.  Many of the kids at the party (high school seniors) had never had the opportunity to have a caricature of themselves drawn.  They loved it and for many it was their favorite activity at the party. -Cindy, TX

Greetings!

This month is full of the joy of springtime! Record-breaking storms, back-breaking shoveling, and wallet-breaking heating bills are all distant memories. It is indeed a time for celebration, so what are you waiting for? Let us help you kick off the spring/summer right. And remember, it's NEVER too early too book for summer events!

Memorial Day
May 31, 2010

Are you having a Memorial Day BBQ? Then you're going to need entertainment for the kids! Call us today to reserve your hilarious clown, astounding magician, artistic face painter, or talented henna artist. Maybe a juggler would entertain your guests? If they're really hard to impress, maybe you should try a stilt walker or impersonator!

Here are some fun facts to impress your guests in conversation:

1. Waterloo, N.Y. is the first town to ever celebrate Memorial Day.

2. The date of Memorial Day was chosen because they wanted the flowers on the soldier's graves to be blooming on the holiday.

3. Moina Michael started the tradition of wearing red poppies on Memorial Day. She sold them to friends and family to raise money for the servicemen in 1915.

After you've memorized all that, give us a call at 800-923-8669 to book your entertainment!

I drew at a Bat Mitzvah in NYC for a major retailer's family.  Every NY celeb was there, and though I can't name names, drew one famous face after another.  Then got to play with the white tigers they had shipped in for the event!
