Balloon Animals at the Frolics

Hi, My name is Michael and I’m the owner of BALLOONIES, where we manufacture smiles, one balloon animal at a time. I will be performing at the Crystal Frolics this year from Thursday, July 24th through Sunday July 27th. Thursday and Friday evenings I will be available from 6 till 9 pm. On Saturday from noon till 9pm and Sunday from noon till 8pm. A minimum tip of one dollar ($1.00) per balloon is needed to cover my costs, but any additional gratitude for my skill and artistry is always appreciated. I’m looking forward to seeing you there.
