With summer fast approaching, we’re excited to bring our talent and entertainment to the great outdoors. Producing carnivals for attendees of all ages, from the tots learning to walk to our older couples teaching us how to jump, jive 'n wail, our team is ready for a whole lot of fun and cotton candy! Here is a peek at three carnival celebrations for very special clients from last year!
The first carnival, an annual event for us, was for one of our favorite clients at Oakland City Center. The OCC Carnival is completely free and open to the public as the Center’s way of showing gratitude to both tenants and neighbors for their patronage. Team Entire managed a craft booth where visitors made custom frames, and also brought in magician MC Calvin Kai Ku, face painter Lisa, balloon artist Raul, popcorn and cotton candy vendors and vintage carnival games. The event draws over 300 attendees each year, and 2016 proved to be the biggest and most successful OCC carnival yet!

The second carnival was a new event for another one of our most fabulous loyal clients - this time to celebrate their occupancy of a new floor in the One Market Spear Tower building. Royal Jelly Jive brought the event alive and proved to be the perfect fit for a carnival setting. They were joined by fellow entertainers including stilt walkers, tarot card readers, an acclaimed mime artist, a photo booth complete with carnival themed props, and vintage carnival games. The event- held seven floors up in a historic San Francisco building, made for some tight logistics coordination (always a breeze for us here at Entire Productions!) and also made for the most amazing bay, ferry building, bridge and skyline city views. The event was a smashing success and featured the most stunning backdrop we’ve seen at a carnival event to date.
The final event, held at The Pacific Telephone Building at 140 New Montgomery, was a tenant appreciation event and another annual carnival event for us here at Entire. The event featured live music spun by DJ King Most, plus entertainment provided by caricaturists Rene Pulido and Mokhtar Paki, a tarot card reader, a photo booth and vintage carnival games. The guests, all still kids at heart, were both playful and appreciative of the event, proving you’re never too old to let go and enjoy some summer fun.
