Grand Rapids Clowns

That birthday for your child is coming up soon and you are not quite done with the planning. You know you want to hire some great entertainment for your child and all of their friends that will be coming but you are not sure what kind of entertainment would be best. May we recommend a professional clown for your event. Clowns are so versatile and can provide many different types of entertainment for various ages. We realize however that you have probably never had to seek out a clown before. And that means a learning curve for you. You are probably wondering where in the world would you start in terms of your search. Well, one thing we know for sure is that there are plenty of clown vendors in the Grand Rapids area. What you need is a game plan as to how to find the right one for you. For that purpose, we have provided you with this guide that will hopefully lead you to the clown that will serve your party the best.

 

You can start by harnessing the power of the world wide web. Do a Google search for “birthday party clowns in the Grand Rapids area.” You should get back a number of potential clowns that you can check into. We suggest that you spend some time checking out the individual websites of clown vendors and determining which ones you would like to check out further. Another great source is your family, friends and coworkers. There is a very good chance that someone that you know has either hired a clown at some point or been to a party where they thought the clown who showed up provided excellent service. Make sure you write all of these names down so you can setup some interviews. Once you have a working list that you are satisfied with, call up the candidates that you are very interested in exploring and find out when and where they can meet you to discuss your party needs.

 

Before you meet with any potential clowns, there is one thing that you will want to make sure of. Make sure that the birthday boy or girl actually likes clowns. This may seem like an odd question, but the last thing that you want is a deathly frightened child running and screaming away from what is supposed to be the main entertainment. Also, keep in mind that the really good vendors get booked up rather early. So, start your search at least a month before the party date. When you meet with your candidates, have some pointed questions ready.

 

Find out what age group they target. How long have they been a clown? Ask for references and make sure you call each one to find out how they performed. How did they learn how to be a clown? How long will they perform? What is the charge for the various services that they perform? Will they twist balloons into figures? What about tricks or stunts? Will they personalize the show? Make sure you do a background check on anyone you serious consider. When one candidate stands out, ask them for a contract and make sure everything is specified correctly.
