Carnival Times rents and consigns fire-retardant, inflatable party equipment for kids’ birthdays, company parties, and community events. Their wares include such festive accoutrements as a Spider-Man bouncer, a screamer slide, a retro photo booth, and a cotton-candy kiosk. The party-centric staff opens the company's doors for customers to pick up their rentals with a truck, large SUV, or horse-drawn covered wagon and also facilitates delivery services.
Complete Music's repertoire of services actually extends well beyond the wedding DJing from which it takes its name. The staff includes photographers, videographers,
lighting designers, and photo booth technicians, all of whom lend their services to help preserve memories. While DJs put together song lists tailored to the tastes of the bride and groom, the rest of the team tirelessly illuminates and records the day. In total, they help produce over 13,000 weddings each year, which is
two more weddings than Henry VIIIth had in his entire life.

Donning Viking hats and oversize sunglasses, partygoers charge into the spacious confines of Booth Crazy's modern photo booths, which eschew the trappings and restrictions of retro nostalgia. Up to 10 prop-clad guests pile in front of the camera at once, making the booths ideal for capturing memories of extended families or duels between two classical quintets. A friendly photographic host sets up and maintains the booth throughout each event, helping attendees compose and create 4"x6" prints or 2"x6" strips, which can be emblazoned with custom designs. Cameras snap unlimited pictures, with their collected images uploaded to the Internet and flash drives for later perusal, printing, and sharing.
Michelle of Pink Dandelion Photography takes a playful approach to capturing portraits. She often uses off-kilter angles and unique close-ups, always staying on the lookout for candid shots. She can snap memorable photos indoors or out, in the hazy morning or at twilight, and in classic black and white or vibrant color. The business also offers wedding videography to ensure all the big day’s big moments are preserved, from the bridesmaids’ preparation to the moment when the best man rides his motorcycle through the wedding cake.
Customers can take their own photos by renting Pink Dandelion’s KC Hoot Booth, a full-size, touch-screen photo booth. Equipped with props such as animal hats, crowns, and oversized sunglasses, the booth dispenses black-and-white and full-color prints to help partygoers remember a fun event forever.
For large groups, photo booths often pose the problem of how to split up, tearing apart friendships and relationships as their members split into small enough contingents to fit inside. Fortunately, SillySide Photo Booth keeps friendly circles intact with its open-air photo stations, which can accommodate up to 12 event guests at once. A selection of props such as hats, boas, and glasses keep the proceedings light, and unlimited photo strips ensure everyone can be in the spotlight. Fun additions include commemorative photo books, print sleeves with ribbons, and magnetic frames for attaching to refrigerators or sticking all over the host’s car.
