Didn’t St. Paul make tents? How much more . . .
Big Sam the Stilt-walker
308 High Street
I wanted to notify you of my stilt-walking and balloon (sculpting) services.
Over the years, I have been contracted by various businesses to entertain: special openings, promotions, festivals, parades, D. C. mall events, Kennedy Center, even dancing in a musical! My stilt-walking performances began at the largest Mexican restaurant in the world, Casa Bonita in Denver in 1975. My smallest regular job was a group of about fifty campers at the KOA camp in Gambrills, Maryland. Annually for nine years I performed there on the eve of the Fourth of July blowing balloons and leading a few patriotic songs.
I am now relocated in Wilmington, Ohio, where I have walked in parades, fairs, and fundraisers, establishments like the Great Wolf Lodge and annual events: Buddy Walk of Dayton (MVDSA). I would love to “walk” for you. Rates depend upon travel distance and length of performance. But, to give you and idea, if I travel within 45 minutes from Wilmington, walk among the crowd, shaking hands, holding children for pictures, and blowing up and fashioning balloons, rates are:
$ 125 . . . . . . . . 1st hour
$ 100 . . . . . . . .
$ 70 . . . . . . . . 3rd hour
$ 50 . . . . . . . . 4th and each add. hour
One of the thrills of young and old is photographing people. Some will stand next to Big Sam; some little children he hoists high for a great picture!
He stands as tall as Goliath (9 ½ feet) but is much more amiable.
Please give a call if you would like to talk further. I look forward to hearing from you.
