As our firm grew, the more formal name, Celebration Authority was added to indicate the firm's expanded array of services. Our phenomenal growth now allows us to provide an extensive range of entertainment, inflatable activity items, catering, carnival games and rental equipment for every kind of special event from corporate to municipal to domestic and more.
