Local Kid Entertainers ‘Hit The Big Time’ at Tallahassee Mall!

Tallahassee, Florida July 8, 2013— Junior Members of the Family Entertainers Guild, Miles and Bentley Mercer, have won the opportunity to ‘go into business’ at the Tallahassee Mall. The youngsters entered a contest sponsored by the Tallahassee Mall last month and have now been given the opportunity to strut their business know-how on July 20th from 1-4pm in the Tallahassee Mall's Center Court. 
Bentley Mercer (age 11) first appeared as Pippy the Clown, with flaming magenta braids, in the last Springtime Tallahassee Parade alongside Tallahassee legend Coo-Coo the clown. Pippy will be showcasing her fun antics and balloon twisting ability at the mall on July 20, 2013.

Miles Mercer (age 13) will be setting up shop at a temporary airbrush tattoo master. Miles has been spraying airbrush tattoos for just over a year and has worked professionally for high school graduation parties, on location at community festivals, First Friday in railroad square and for the Kids Triathlon Series. Miles also has his own business web site at

The siblings come by their skills naturally as mom has been a family entertainer with FairyDust Faces for most of their lives. “In fact Miles was a stilt walker last year for the 4th of July celebrations in both Southwood and at Tom Brown park, but really tattoos are what he’s really interested in. And Bentley, well she’s just a goof ball so a clown was a natural fit for her”

The Tallahassee Family Entertainers Guild is dedicated to the education of family entertainers in the fields of face and body art, performance arts such as characters, puppetry, yo-yo and jugglers, games, balloon twisting and party decoration. Our primary goal is to elevate the standards and quality of family entertainment in North Florida and provide an educational and professional resource for family entertainers and artists in our community.
