How far in advance should I reserve my event date?
The sooner you can call us and let us know about your event, the better. We stay very busy, especially during spring and fall. Often we have events booked almost a year in advance. Certain holidays are particularly busy. The earlier you book your event, the better the chance you have of getting an important date!
What determines your prices?
There are five basic considerations that factor into our pricing structure.
How far do we have to travel to get to your event?
What will we be doing at your event?
How many entertainers will be needed at your event?
How many children will be at your event?
How long will we be at your event?
Does it matter if my party is indoors or outdoors?
In most cases our entertainment is upbeat and full of high energy; with that in mind, during the hot, summer months, it is preferable to perform indoors in a cool air-conditioned environment. However, Sparky has performed numerous outside events that have been very successful. If your show is outside, a shaded area is absolutely required and a back-up plan should be established in case of inclement weather.
What services can you offer to corporations?
We have provided a variety of services for many corporate activities such as promotional events, grand openings, employee picnics, Christmas parties, etc. Preceding an event, we will provide a professional proposal for your decision makers. Once you decide on an event package, we will send you a complete contract for your approval. After your event, we will send an invoice to your company. Typically we expect payment in full within 30 days. We use top of the line software and are tech savvy. We work with corporate clients frequently and are accustomed to preparing professional proposals and contracts as well as invoices.
How long have you been performing in the area?
Sparky has been a resident of St. Johns County since 1990 and performing since 2000. Sparky is a member of World Clown Association, Clowns of America International, South East Clown Association, Gator Clowns of Jacksonville, and carries professional performer’s insurance.
