To Whom it May Concern:
We invited Gail Burke . “The Balloon Lady” to our festival for the first time this year coming with high recommendation from another of our performers. It did not take us long to figure out why she was so valuable to our event.
Calling Gail “just a balloon lady” is like calling Sidney Crosby ‘just a hockey player’. There are all kinds of people in the balloon business, and certainly Gail is at the top of the heap.
In a flash (with customized equipment), she was able to create complex and original pieces of balloon art – wings for kids (and dogs) all manner of headwear, colourful arches for baby strollers and just about anything else you can imagine. Once her work was viewed by our guests, she had a steady lineup for the next four hours.
She interacted well with all of our crowd, both young and old, and made her best efforts to accommodate the requests she got from the kids – time being the only drawback.
There is no question in the minds of the Riverfest Committee that Gail was a both a pleasure and a treasure to find. There is also no question that she will be in attendance at Cambridge Riverfest for many years to come.
She should be at your event too!
Thanks Gail and we will be pleased to see you again next year!
