May 7th 2023, Madox’s Warriors Foundation Kids Dance, St.Norbert, Manitoba
This is the start of a very busy month and a half, 16 events booked and a few more requesting quotes. It’s going to be such an exciting start to the summer!!
This was our second year that we were asked to create memories for everyone who attends. I had started thinking about our set-up as soon as we were done last year. I wanted to make sure we kept it fresh and new as no one wants that same experience year after year. I am already planning for next year.
I ordered a comic book backdrop, found some very cool super hero props at PBX and of course my amazing graphic designer not only created a wonderful overlay and animation but he also had a whole package for a complete work flow.
The week before we confirmed set-up times and had decided this is the perfect event to train new staff. If you can handle a bunch of kids for 3 hours you can definitely handle our other events lol. Kind-of trial by fire for them.
I loaded and tested the booth, along with our new printer (so glad it arrived in it)- packed up the props, including our new superhero ones and had everything ready to go. A few items in my check list to add last minute but we are ready.
Sunday morning, May 7th 2023 we loaded the trailer, preparing for set-up at Madox’s Warriors Foundation Kids Dance in St. Norbert, Manitoba. We were happ we had no issues, except Sasha following us as she knows when we pack the trailer we are leaving her. Those puppy dog eyes she gives…. Ugh lol. When time comes to leave she lays on the bathroom floor with radio playing waiting for her special treat.
Set-up on May 7th 2023 at Madox’s Warriors Foundation Kids Dance in St.Norbert, Manitoba was so easy, took less than an hour and we were ready to go. I watched and listened to this amazing family, who have put this event on every year since losing thier son to a rare type of a brain tumour. Madox's Warriors is an amazing organization!! This is not my story to tell, but I highly encourage you to not only read about thier journey but to donate to help them find a cure- they are “committed to raising funds in which 100% of all net proceeds raised go toward childhood brain cancer research (specifically DIPG), hoping to help children in the future.”
A Bit Of Time Before May 7th 2023, Madox’s Warriors Foundation Kids Dance, St.Norbert, Manitoba
We even had time to grab a lunch. We decided to try Wayback Burgers- on Pembina Hwy. As we walked in we both were surprised by the old vintage dinner feeling (with a bit of a modern twist) The staff was very friendly and helpful in making our decisions. The food came fast and even got a free Mac and cheese bites. Loved everything and will definitely be returning. Gonna leave a 5 star review Forsure.
