Our story

Balloonshine Entertainment was founded in 1998, when Jason Bliss was working in restaurants and entertaining at parties in Phoenix, Arizona. Since then he’s traveled, tying balloons in dozens of cities throughout North and Central America. He’s donned balloon hats on village elders in Guatemala, gifted balloon monkeys to orphans in Honduras, entertained at many of the most famous tourist strips in the United States and has decorated blow out bashes for millionaires in the southwestern hills.

Since relocating back to the Twin Cities, in 2016, Balloonshine Entertainment has grown to become a team through collaboration with several brilliant Twin Cities artists (some of them listed below.)

 

 

 

Jason Bliss

Having attended conventions and balloon jams with some of the world’s most talented artists, Jason continues to study and grow as an artist and entertainer.  His award-winning art has been published in trade magazines and he’s taught workshops in classrooms throughout the U.S.
Besides working with balloons and entertaining at events, Jason is a massage therapist and father of three amazing little boys.  He is also the co-founder of a permaculture education center in Costa Rica, and has spent much of his life practicing and teaching the value of living a health-conscious and ecologically-mindful lifestyle.
