When celebrating milestones or achievements, bringing the magic and fun is what takes an event from special to memorable for children and adults alike. Fiesta Fantastic, an entertainment company based in southern California, is committed to making the magic happen at any event or gathering.
Founder Hector and Lori Arias built Fiesta Fantastic from the ground up. It began while Hector was taking classes at Biola University, and began working for a party entertainment company to make money for school. However, doing different party tricks in costumes by himself for an entire party became a task. He decided to branch off and pursue entertaining on his own in 2005, and has built a team including his wife Lori that brings quality entertainment including magic tricks, balloon twisting, and face painting. Their company also has a trackless train for rent similar to ones used in shopping malls, that children can ride.
Fiesta Fantastic performs at many different events, but specializes in children’s birthday parties. They serve the greater Los Angeles area, including clients in Riverside, San Bernardino, Orange, and Los Angeles counties.
Lori Arias, who studied art in college, began entertaining with Hector while they were dating in college, and realized that the one man show needed some help. She now paints colorful and unique face painting designs for their events as well as assisting with balloon twisting. For those who have questions about what face paint and balloon products Fiesta Fantastic uses, they are listed on their website, fiestafantastic.com.
Fiesta Fantastic is a great entertainment addition to any event. They work private parties, birthday parties, church events, school functions and parties, company picnics, as well as city holiday events including the Fourth of July and Easter egg hunts. Aside from the Arias’, they have multiple entertainers on their team that can do face painting or balloon twisting, who can be hired separately for a party. The live magic show, however, is Hector’s specialty.
Hector says that providing quality service is of utmost importance to him and the Fiesta Fantastic team, as many people use precious time and money to have enjoyable parties for their children and loved ones, and want it to be a positive experience to look back on.
“Some people save for months, and this might be the first and only time some of these children ever get to see a live magic show, or face painting, or balloon twisting, especially a trackless train, so we want to make sure we bring it,” Hector says.
After years of experience in the party entertainment industry, Fiesta Fantastic has interacted with many vendors and has built a level of vendor knowledge they share with party hosts. They recommend vendors to clients that offer services other than their own such as petting zoos, concession stand vendors, caterers, taco vendors, and more.
“We’ve seen their work, so we know when we recommend somebody to a vendor, we’re not just blindly giving their number,” Lori says.
One thing that separates Fiesta Fantastic aside from the range of party entertainers is their commitment to consistency, punctuality, and reliability. Showing up to events on time, upholding their bookings, and making their presence truly entertaining for guests are a few ways that they establish their customer service.
“This is an important event in their life and everyone’s there to enjoy themselves, so we want to deliver a product that adds to the party,” Lori says.
