They really need to fix the lights. It is too dark and hard to see the kids when leaving.

I was hired to do a Magic Show, for the children every day.
Because I was coming from out of Town, I agreed to do my Balloon Figures for Tips Only (not free) a rather kind gesture, I thought.
However,... on the last day of the Fair, 2 of the Fair Board Members, neither of which I made the agreement with, approached me.
They had set me up, after a Vendor, had complained because I would not make her teenage boy a Balloon Figure for free!
Apparently these Fair Board Members expected me to spend 8 Hours, making Balloon Figures for Free, without any compensation, since all they paid for was the Magic Show.
The one lady said "we want happy children."
I understand that, as everyone else was happy, and I received several compliments on my Balloon Figures, AND earlier that day, the Fair Board President, who Booked me, asked me about coming back next year!
Sadly, I was not given the opportunity to speak to her, and I felt she pretty much "hung me out to dry!"
Anyone who goes to Fairs and Festivals, knows that most Balloon Artists charge $5.00 or more per Figure.
I do my Multiple Balloon Figures for a $1.00 Tip.
I am sorry that I could not please everyone, and that the Board Members overlooked the Many Compliments from most everyone else.
Most of the people were Very Pleasant, and I had a lot of fun.
