It was another mild day in the Poconos, and a perfect day to hit the slopes! The skiers were in full force yesterday at Shawnee Mountain Ski Area, and they enjoyed all the festivities of the annual winter carnival!
This celebration of winter is such a big event it is covered by many of the local news stations and the local paper. We had popcorn and carnival games there, and there were ice sculptors and skiing demonstrations, but the media loves the face painter.
Check out the two articles below that feature our resident face painter, Georgette Clark:

In the Northeast we have 4 distinct seasons, each with their own characteristics - sports, recreation, chores, food - just about everything can be associated with a season. Parties and events also have their own seasons. If you are aware of the season - what else is happening - when you want to have your event, you can plan for that and ensure the success of your party.
We realize there are certain types of parties you can not change. You can't change your child's birthday, and it would be ridiculous to hold the company Christmas party in October, but with a little creative planning, your party will be a success!
We are in the party business, that is what we do. We party 24/7, 365 days a year. After attending hundreds of parties, the biggest tip we can give is to plan ahead.
You maybe thinking that there must be more important aspects in planning a party, but the truth is, if you plan ahead, everything will fall easily into place.
How early should you plan ahead? At least two months for a typical family gathering like a family reunion or birthday party. Are you planning the company picnic, festival or community day? Give yourself at least three to six months, depending on the size of your event. If you want a specific venue, entertainer, caterer, or other service, you may want to think a year in advance.
We have one client who always goes above and beyond for her parties - they are themed and everything from food to decorations to music enhances the theme. Our first contact about her next event happened almost two months from the date of her party. Shawnee Mountain Ski Area schedules their entertainment for the summer and fall festivals in the dead of winter, and Rockaway Townsquare schedules their Kidgits Club Entertainment four to five months in advance.
