October is always an action-packed month for us… & this one was very fun! From unicorns to creepy clowns… we covered a lot of bases at some fantastic events.
Here are some Highlights: 

October 6th- Noche en Blanc at the Sacramento Zoo
Our Party Animals made a special appearance at this global ‘white party’ event that rotates it’s locations (& keeps them secret from the 3,000 guests until the day of!) at the zoo in Sacramento.
Our ever popular Zebra stilt walker was joined by the new Unicorn Stilt Party Animal who actually stole the show… cause who doesn’t love unicorns??Unicorn & Zebra 4 legged Stilt Walkers by Catalyst Arts Entertainment in California- dinner en blanc Sacramento October 14th we did 2 special events…

For The Stand for The Redwoods Festival at Yerba Buena Gardens in San Francisco (organized by Peridot Events) we sent 4 fantastic Face Painters & 2 giant Party Animals… the Butterfly & a new costumed character we created specifically for this event… the Stilt Owl!Owl & Butterfly Party Animal Stilt Walkers by Catalyst Arts EntertainmentCatalyst Arts Face painters at Stand for the Redwoods Fest in SFLater that night 3 of our Illuminated Walkabout Glow Go Dancer ladies were brought in by planner Mimi the Party Queen again for the Mill Valley Film Festival Closing Party in San Rafael at the Elks Lodge. First they were stationed along the route from the theater to the party to make sure guests didn’t get lost making their way to the venue… literally lighting their path. Later they brought quite a buzz of excitement & a flurry of paparazzi at the party and even ended up making the Front Page of the local newspaper! LINK here

On October 18th our Silk Stilt Butterflies were brought in to help celebrate an Anniversary event at the Bethany Center in SF by planner Robert Hunter Events.Stilt Walking Butterflies by Catalyst Arts Entertainment in SF

On October 20th we were invited to one of the oldest wineries in the whole State of California… Buena Vista Winery in Sonoma- where our Wine Dress Hostess dazzled guests upon entering the courtyard & made for an irresistible photo opportunity. Our golden Rose Tarot Reader was also quite a hit with a long line all night waiting their turn for her golden nuggets of reflection.
