A Magical Anecdote
Over the weekend, I had the pleasure of performing at a “Carnival Extravaganza” themed party in the vibrant King of Prussia, near the iconic Valley Forge National Historical Park. The kids were dressed as jesters, magicians, and acrobats, and the setting was a colorful spectacle.
A Lesson in Timing: A Recent Experience in Ambler, PA
Just a few days ago, I performed at a birthday party for a 4-year-old turning 5 in nearby Ambler, PA. While I usually recommend a short 30-minute show for kids this age, the timing of the party presented some challenges. The magic show was scheduled to start at the same time as the party, which led to late arrivals and a 30-minute delay. Additionally, a face painter was booked to start 30 minutes after the show, but some kids were still arriving 45 minutes to an hour late. The result was a sensory overload for the youngsters, with magic, late arrivals, face painting, food, and other activities all competing for their attention. While the show was great, the distractions were numerous.
So, whether you’re planning a magical event in Ambler, King of Prussia, or anywhere in the Philadelphia area, remember that proper timing and planning are crucial for a successful party.
