Every summer, Evans Events under the name 9th Period Shows brings their high-energy, audience interactive show to over 60 libraries across the state of Florida and the country. Throughout the year, their comedy, illusion, and balloon artistry can be seen everywhere from cruise ships to schools to corporate events to NBC’s The Tonight Show. The full scale illusions have been a favorite of Royal Caribbean’s Flagship Allure of The Seas, the balloon artistry has been featured across America, including a full-size rollercoaster and 18 foot Godzilla for Universal Studios, and their family comedy illusion show seen at over 100 schools and libraries each and every year. Never has everything they offer come together in one show… until now.
In coordination with the national theme, new for the 2015 season, we bring you “Heroes: The Event of the Summer.” This non-stop, action packed 40 minute experience is filled with magic, music, puppets, award-winning balloon artistry, and of course Sydney, our live eclectus parrot.

Godzilla Super Sculpture!
We have been asked to make all sorts of balloon art and balloon creations around Naples, Fort Myers, and actually all over the world, but this will remain as one of the most unique. After quite a while talking to contacts and people, we were to create a Balloon Super Sculpture at Universal Studios for an upcoming movie's 60th Anniversary celebration. To celebrate the 60th anniversary, the movie's original team and living actors will be in attendance as well as current stars like Director John Carpenter, cast members of The Walking Dead, Halloween, and Once Upon A Time. Our Super structure will be one of the centerpieces of the event!

A little about us and our experience...

He has performed his unique brand of entertainment not only at private events across the United States, but on cruise ships, corporations, and for celebrities and politicians, including two United States presidents. The Dallas Morning Star after watching a performance proclaimed, "Magic is Entertaining Again!"

Making of Jack and The Beanstalk
Who doesn't like a challenge? Doing balloon artistry, balloon twisting, and and balloon decor across Naples and around Southwest Florida, we have been asked for a lot of amazing creations. However, this one was truly of storybook proportions. Recently, we were approached by a convention in the Naples/Fort Myers area that's theme was "Growing Upward". They wanted a Balloon Super-Structure that was made with this theme in mind, and they already had an idea. A massive Jack and the Beanstalk. We were instantly excited as it would be a completely unique structure. After research, drawing out ideas, and planning, we decided on a Jack and the Beanstalk a full 2 and a half stories tall!
