Mascot Parties is more than happy to reschedule your party, the more notice in advance the better! We will work together with you to find a mutually agreeable date. We allow 30 days to reschedule. If you choose to cancel your party, the deposit is non-refundable. Corporate events are required to have a minimum of a 30 day cancellation notice or they will be subject to a fee. If you would like to upgrade your package we would be happy to do so based upon availability. Unfortunately, we will not be able to downgrade any packages once a deposit has been received due to booking off the time slot and securing staff.
Most customers do choose to “tip” the performer. However, gratuities are not expected and always very much appreciated. This is normally completed at the end of their performance in cash form and is presented to the party host.
In the event of illness/bad weather/ events beyond our control, Mascot Parties reserves the right to reschedule your party. In rare and extreme circumstances, where our performer cannot attend your party/event we will provide your child with a complimentary party for a mutually agreed upon future date, and fully refund any deposit that has been made. Mascot Parties takes pride in its superior customer service and we strive to ensure that all of our customers receive the best in children’s entertainment.
The customer agrees to hold and keep harmless Mascot Parties, it's Agents and Performers from any and all property damages and bodily injured damage caused by the customer's guests or other persons attending the party. We do use hypo-allergenic make-up products on the children, and separate Q-tips for each child's application, but in the event that a child is allergic to the make-up, we are not held responsible. We will gladly provide temporary tattoos in lieu of make-up at the customer's request.
