Entertainment for Libraries


If you’re struggling to find a program that fits your theme, tired of the same program just repackaged, or frustrated with unprofessional entertainers, you need to read this page because your answer lies below…

Engaging families that attend the library: Put a Twist of Fun into your reading program.

“They all laughed as I started to twist a balloon, but then…

With every twist of the wrist, a swirl of a balloon, and a funny pun uttered, Dale captivates an audience like a Pied Piper playing a tune.

The audience is swept away by the balloon-twisting choreography; the audience relaxes and enjoys the moment. Tranquility sets in, knowing that a veteran entertainer is behind every twist and joke, ensuring that the unexpected pop will not deflate the fun.

How this show draws more families to the library than other shows.

  1. You’ll discover balloons are liked by kids and adults
  2. A never-fail opening or closing show that works for any library theme.
  3. A show that is designed for 5 to 75-year-olds.

The comedy, choreography, and interactivity of the Magic Balloon-dude’s library show send kids into creative, fun overdrive – which, after all, is the library’s mission.
The library silence is broken, with children laughing as they sit, watching Dale’s co-star’s reaction as Dale inflates a balloon through their heads. Making for a priceless moment.

Parents appreciate going to the library and interacting with creative people like Dale. The library and Dale create an experience that makes going to the library fun and educational.

“I just wanted to say thank you again for a FABULOUS program! Everyone is still raving about you, and all are still enjoying the balloons you left for us! – Wendy Asbridge Mokena Public Library.

If You Can Flip A Switch, You Can “Wow” An Audience

Turn the house lights off and hear the oohs and aahs from the audience as glowing balloons twirl about the room.

Blacklight works in most environments. It only requires lowering lights, but the darker you can make it, the more dramatic the effect on the audience.
