Testimonial
Encore Kids Parties played a major role in the success of the party. The hosts were absolutely wonderful. They had the children's attention from the very moment they walked in. Every child participated in the games and activities, even the most shy and even the couple of children who are known to have difficulty socializing. The hosts made every child feel special. The hosts vocal talent was the topic of conversation amongst the parents as well as how well they interacted with the children. Lisa Grundy Oct 2016
