How I Became the Kansas “Carnival Lady”

I’ve always had a love for entertaining and an entrepreneurial spirit. When asked, I say I truly have the best job in KC. Who else gets to have conversations about Giant Human Hamster Balls, Camel Rides, Super Hero face painting and Chocolate Cotton Candy all in one day?

With approximately 20 employees, and over 100 entertainers, my team performs over 1300 events per year. My husband Kevin, a fabulous office staff and I are able to navigate over 300 inflatables, countless games and food service machines going to locations all over the Midwest. Our most notable clients include the Royals, Chiefs, Cerner and Power & Light Family Fun Days just to name a few.

I started out doing birthday party appearances as different characters then it quickly turned into needing inflatables for private events. I then found a huge need for a reputable, safety conscious company who can provide inflatables for large events. Through the years I’ve bought out a few other local companies to increase my inventory. I also attend an annual convention to see the latest and greatest to further expand our unique selection of equipment. This enables me to serve any client from schools, churches, corporations, even high end private events.

What differentiates us from the competitors? Safety and personnel would be my top two answers. Safety…there aren’t any real regulations on design of equipment, so I am careful to only purchase pieces I feel are safe. I’ve even redesigned pieces to add safety features which add the purchase price of the units, but it’s worth every penny.   Personnel…our drivers are all cleared to be around your children. No other company takes this extra step. Also, we do a complete walk through at your event to ensure you have full knowledge of the equipment or we can provide adult uniformed attendants (no teenagers) to ensure safety at your event.

Who knew 24 years ago doing balloon bouquets and dressing up as a pirate in a neighbors back yard would lead to thousands of events performed all over the Midwest. I’m one of those lucky people whose passion turned into a successful business.
