HOW LONG IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK MY KIDS ENTERTAINMENT?
At Clowns.com we typically have a waiting list 3 to 4 week in advance of your desired party date. For example, if your party is taking place on May 4th, chances are that date is already been fully booked by April 4th. The reason we are booked this far in advance is that we only have a select number of entertainers who work in-house. We do not contract or hire outside entertainers. This is contrary to how 99% of the clown industry works. While no one will ever admit it, this is unfortunately what takes place. We believe that we cannot sacrifice the quality of our show by hiring someone who does not understand the level of service which our clients expect. This is why we are selective about which parties we decide to take on. We recommend booking your party as soon as you are sure of the date and time of your event.
WHAT IS YOUR BOOKING PROCESS?
To book and secure your desired time and date, we require a $100 dollar deposit for entertainment & equipment rentals. We require a $200 dollar deposit on any inflatable bounce house packages. We then put together a contract which will include all of the details of your event. The contract is then e-mailed to you where you may review and sign a final copy. Once you sign a copy of your party contract, you will receive an e-mail receipt and confirmation stating that your event is now booked. The remainder of the balance is due the day of the party before the start of the entertainment.
We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, & Amex. Please note that deposits are not refundable, but transferable with a 14 day notice of cancellation.
