Costs depend upon your services selected, event location, length of performance and customizations, if any. If you have a budget, that is extremely helpful in advising on what services are a possible match. If you have not defined a budget, we will create a realistic budget for you, based upon the services that you want provided and the amount of guests attending.

Many fees are based on a starting one to two hour minimum schedule length, with possible discounts for larger packages. Most entertainer fees begin at a one hour schedule and up. Most musician fees include a 3 hour schedule and inflatable attractions and rides include a 4 hour schedule.
