Tips & FAQ's
Birthday Parties Q’s
School Carnivals, Church Carnivals, Fundraisers Q’s
A: We suggest the sooner the better, we like to plan our routes early on to give you the customer the best service ever, and depending on how large or small our events are we only schedule 1-3 events per day so our dates book up fast, Saturday’s are especially popular.
A: We find that our Little Carnival games are great for any ages from 2-99. We have the flexibility of making any of our carnival games as easy or as hard as possible by just moving our game stands either forward or back to make them just right for the age group we are hosting. There are some games that might not work for the very little crowd but they aren’t too many
A: We have set up private parties for as little as 10 children and as large as 3,000. No matter what the group size is, we make it just as special and fun for everyone.
A: MLC requires a signed Agreement Contract and a 50% deposit for events booked 31 days or less out, 40% for 32-60 days out and 30% for 61+ days out. At this time MLC will take personal or organization check, credit card or cash. Balance is due prior to event proceeding in Cash Day Of, Credit Card 24hrs prior or Check 1 week prior to event.
A: My Little Carnival must be notified of the postponement before traveling to the event preferably at least 24hrs prior. Client may reschedule the event within 60 days of the original event date at no additional cost. If postponement of an event is necessary, My Little Carnival reserves the right to substitutions of equal or greater value on the rescheduled event date. If postponement of the event is made after travel to the event has begun or the event has begun, an additional charge may be added up to a maximum of ten percent of the contract price (travel expense coverage)
A: If a reservation is cancelled after travel to the event has begun, the deposit will not be refunded not to exceed 50% of the total contract price. If the event is cancelled after My Little Carnival has arrived on site of the event, the full rental charge is due and payable.
A: Yes, MLC carries all necessary insurance required by law, but this by no mean implies MLC has legal responsibility. Please see our contract for details.
A: Yes, we can change, add or swap out items in our packages, usually for an additional charge.
A: MLC is not a rental equipment company, we are a Full Service Little Carnival who will bring everything right to your back yard, park, school, church or business and will Set-Up, Service & Break Down the whole show. So basically for maybe a few bucks more by paying us you won’t have to worry about driving around town buying supplies, having to pick up, set up and return the items you need to create your own carnival plus getting your neighbors kids to volunteer to stick around the entire event to play the games and having someone inexperienced man the Cotton Candy Machine/Popcorn Machines, etc….you can hire us and save a ton of time and effort!
Q: Can my school or organization hire MLC to run our yearly Fundraiser, Harvest Festival, Halloween Carnival, End of the Year Appreciation Day, Grand Opening or Church Carnival for a profit?
A: YES! We are available for hire, we would create a special package per person so that your organization can sell for between 20-50% more then your cost to us and make a profit without the hassle of doing the whole event yourself.
