Edmonton Party Magic

Family Party Fun

Children’s Party Entertainers is a true family affair; this Edmonton family has been using their balloon twisting talents to help create magical memories for people since 1997. Ronda Lisowski is a magician storyteller for children. Her daughters, Larissa and Miranda, began their careers at 12. Today, Ronda's company provides costumed entertainers who bring face painting, airbrush tattoos, sparkle tattoos, balloon animals, balloon décor, crafts and large magic shows with bunnies from halls to backyard get-togethers.

Ronda says performing with Miranda and Larissa has enriched their lives. “For my daughters it was at a time in their lives when they were learning how to deal with people, and it developed their confidence. They have been able to develop their creative problem solving and public speaking skills. Now in their twenties, they are involved in a variety of leadership opportunities,” she says. While it has been stressful at times, Ronda says they always fall back on the family motto: “When you show up, shine!” And shine they have.

Our goal is to come in to their party, take the pressure off, and let them enjoy their time. - Ronda Lisowski, owner

Entertainment For The Kids

One of Ronda's highlights was when the whole family, including husband Todd, performed at the Canadian Finals rodeo at Rexal place with the clowns for 16,000 rodeo fans. Ronda was invited to be one of the face-painters at the world renowned Street Performers Festival in Edmonton in 2014. Whether it’s for 2000 people or just 10 little ones, Ronda knows how to plan an event and keep her audience entertained. Magic, balloons, face paint and tattoos – Children's Party Entertainers do it all while blending in the responsibility of child care professionals. “We try to read their faces, so we know if we are connecting,” says Ronda. “We can tell by a screwed-up chin or a little wrinkle in the forehead that things are coming unglued. You learn to change directions quickly to keep the children engaged.”

She explains that much of her business is keeping the children busy, but it’s also about making the parents feel relaxed. “Our goal is to come in to their party, take the pressure off, and let them enjoy their time too.” Ronda tries to help the host to provide the best possible event so they can be with the guests and clients.

No matter the size of the event, she says everybody gets the same amount of interest and customization. That means giving parents a game plan for their party or the event planner lots of options. “A lot of times they know they have to do something, but they may not have the right fit. They may not have the right ratio of entertainers-to-children, so we try to help them with that so they look good.”

A Lasting Impression On A Child

Ronda enjoys her occupation because she sees the joy it gives others. She understands the trust families give to her to make these major milestones happy and memorable. “By the time I leave, I hope they are asking their grown-ups if the magic was real. That’s what I’m working for,” she laughs. “When I see that wide-eyed look, I know they are watching me. The joy I get from watching them ooh and awe is really great!”
