LibraryBalloonShow.com is where librarians can find a professional, family-friendly and unique show that generates foot traffic and books being checkout. Our goal is to provide the highest quality entertainment to libraries resulting in a great library experience.
Put a Twist of Fun into your reading program.
Their imaginations soar when children watch an ordinary balloon transform into an extraordinary animal, shape or figure. Just as a good book captivates the minds of its readers, Dale’s balloon show uses art to stimulates the audience’s imagination.
Stimulating imagination, educating, and entertaining patrons is the mission of a library and of Magical Balloon-dude Dale.

Twist balloon fun into this year’s program
The library silence is broken with children laughing as they sit, watching Dale’s co-star’s reaction as Dale inflates a balloon through their head. Making for a priceless moment.

Bring the House Lights Down
Turn the house lights off and hear the oohs and aahs from the audience as glowing balloons twirl about the room.
Blacklight works in most environments. It only requires the lowering of lights, but the darker you can make it, the more dramatic the effect on the audience.
It Is All Done For You
This is a completely self-contained, all ages show. Sound system, backdrop, table, balloons, etc. are included. All you need to do is provide the audience. The program is 45-minutes long and is complete (There are no extra fees for travel, etc). HOWEVER, if you schedule two or more performances the fee drops. The programs do not have to be at the same location, merely coordinated with another library on the same day.
Networking Reduces Your Cost
I encourage you to send out a message on your listserv to coordinate with other libraries to get the fees reduced.
Pencil Me In!
With Dale performing hundreds of shows each year and with the limited amount of dates available in the library program, it is important that you reserve your date ASAP. Email or call to secure a date. There is no obligation to hold the date, just call and place a “hold” on the date until you can confirm it.
