To attract children and adults at Valley Care Hospital's "Day at Emerald Glen Park," in Dublin, Ca, our performer brought her props, and came prepared. Heather performed the centuries old "linking rings" illusion, chose the correct card selected from the deck, juggled bean bags, and made balloon animals. Her clowning skills were able to engage her audience, and meant that attendees spent more quality time at this booth.

The Happy Bird Show was a huge draw at Stoneridge Mall in Pleasanton. The parrots sang, raised the American flag, shot basketballs in mini-hoops, and went on shopping sprees, using mini-shopping carts. This audience involvement show is delightful for children, their parents, and their caretakers. The Happy Birds were a recent hit on the "Ellen DeGeneres Show," where the parrots endeared themselves to Ellen, her television audience, and to viewers nationwide.
