Glow Parties Not Just For Kids



This spring has proven to be a fun start to the busy summer season. We were thrilled to have had the opportunity to take part in some rather fun glow parties. Three of them to be exact.

We kicked off with Live Paint Glow on April 14th, at what was a fun filled night of art, painting and all things glowy. This fundraising event was hosted at The Bourbon Room and saw many great sponsors step forward to help raise money and have fun.

The next event that we worked on, was the annual German Sparkle Party held at the Mercury Lounge in Ottawa. This was another amazing and fun night involving all things glowing and some of Ottawa's best DJ's. The following photographs were from this amazingly fun event, one that everyone should keep an eye out for next year.

And right after The fun at The German Sparkle Party, we had the pleasure of attending the annual electronica music event known as NEON II put on by the awesome folks over at Eephoria, which was held at Ottawa's nightclub known as The Babylon. They truly know how to have fun as well and this one was another packed full house.

Ottawa has come a long way in the electronica music scene and these are all events that everyone should keep an eye out for next year if you are looking to have a lot of fun. We know we had an amazing time at all 3 of these events sharing our black light glow tattoos and face painting.

Great Start to Baseball Season

This will prove to be an exciting summer for us here at sparklingexpressions. We will be the official face painter and glitter tattoo partner for Ottawa's baseball team, The Ottawa Champions for the 2016 season.

The first week was a great start to the season, which saw quite a busy turn out for the games and quite a lot of home runs being batted out of the park.

During the weekday games we will be setup in the main concourse in the main ramp to the stadium behind home plate. (you can't miss us coming in the main doors) During the Sunday family game days we will be set up with the jumpy castles and radio booth out in the family fun zone.

The following are a few pictures that were snapped this past opening week that saw everything from home runs, to musicians, to a Bride and Groom batting baseballs! You just never know what you might see here at RCGT park.

Make A Wish Rope For Hope

sparklingexpressions was on hand this year for the Annual Rope For Hope event held at the Marriott Hotel here in Ottawa on June 6th, next to the Ottawa Champions Baseball stadium. We were thrilled to be able to take part in such an amazing event with our glitter tattoos and face painting. The day was rather long as a lot of people made the rapel from the rooftop to the bottom.

On hand were many local celebrities, radio hosts, as well as the mascots for the Ottawa RedBlacks, and Ottawa Champions. The Cheer squad was on hand as well and we had a great time being able to apply the RedBlacks logo to a few of the cheerleaders with our glitter tattoos.

There was plenty to see and do and plenty of games and activities for all the children who made it for the day.

Here are a few pictures we managed to snap:
