We offer roving balloons, magic, face-painting and general buffoonery!
Carlitta went over and above to make sure all of the guests at our event had a wonderful time.
Carlitta was awesome with the kids and we had some kids that parents told us they are scared of clowns but they really liked her as she wasn't so scary. We thank you so much for entertaining our children and can't wait to have her come again. :)

Carlos and Carlitta were amazing and engaging with the children at our event! Their stage show was funny and entertaining and full of color and song. The balloon animals created a long line up of children excited to see wonderful creations. Thank you for a fabulous show for our young guests!

A gazillion thanks to Carlos & Carlitta Clowning for a fantastic, fun experience enjoyed by all the children at our Canada Day event. You both ROCK!!
Response from Carlos & Carlitta Clowning:
Thanks so much!. Carlos & Carlitta would love to join you and your community for more fun!
We booked Carlitta for our son's first birthday party. She was fabulous! The kids really enjoyed her balloon animals and she did a fantastic job face painting. Carlitta was professional but easy going. She fit into our event really well.
We booked Carlos & Carlitta for 2 hours at an outdoor event in April. Through the cold weather, light rain, and a consistent line up for balloon animals they had a smile on their face and did amazing work! I would highly recommend them to anyone.
Carlitta and company came in a timely manner and immediately entertained the kids. Carlitta was great at keeping each child attention and making them laugh. I would definitely book her again. Thanks again for the wonderful service.
We booked Carlos and Carlitta for a 2 hour period for my son's 5th birthday celebration. I must say that it was the most fun filled two hours and was the highlight of the whole celebration. Both of them are very professional and at the same time very funny. Carlos' s guitar playing skills were great. Face painting by Carlitta was a lot of fun as well and all the children were very happy. So were Carlos' s balloon twisting skills. There was no animal that Carlos could not make. I would highly recommend this duo if you want your son or daughter to become a star in front of their friends....thanks once again to them. We could not have asked for anything more.
We ask Carlos and Carlitta to stretch a little out of the traditional birthday party model to help us with our 50th Anniversary Party. They were great!!! We had a restaurant full of happy customers both young and old. They did a great job at reaching everyone and added great entertainment for the night. I loved seeing all the creations that they came up with and all the smiling faces. Very professional and I would highly recommend them.

Additional Booking Notes
For our magic show we need about 7 square feet of space and for the musical stage show about 10 square feet with electrical outlets nearby. We need to install a full PA sound system for the stage show so easy access from the outside of house to the party room is important.
Face-painting needs a fairly well lit space. (a table and 2 chairs would also be wonderful)
We bring headsets for the larger parties.
