Mary Had a Little Party’s charming candy cart reminds groups that while the times may be changing, a simpler era is not forgotten. Beneath a colorful awning and atop a classic white two-wheeled cart, bountiful candies such as rock candy, cotton candy, and Lemonheads perch to please partiers at any occasion. Kristen, the visionary founder of Mary Had a Little Party, created this candy cart as a way to inspire today’s children with memories of her own childhood, which she spent selling lemonade, making up games with her sister, and creating memories that can’t be bought in a store. She and her crew also please audiences with a traveling puppet theater that reenacts a princess show, or performs a fun twist on the classic nursery rhyme Hey Diddle Diddle.
Weddings, bar mitzvahs, sweet 16s, and holiday parties held at Demers Banquet Hall can't help but give off an upscale vibe. The venue's three event spaces feature luxurious touches such as crystal chandeliers and extra-large dance floors. To keep event-planning easy, the facility also features in-house catering and lighting services.
