Octopus, Ink. Children's Entertainment

Our Story

Octopus, Ink. is a one-man operation. My name is David Weigand and I perform magic and twist balloons for children. Whether it is a birthday party, a community event, a school carnival, a corporate function, a summer camp, a family reunion.... If children are present, I can “add to the fun.” I am not a clown (i.e. no costume, no makeup), but what I do is very “clown like.” The magic and balloon twisting I perform is aimed at accomplishing one thing - MAKING CHILDREN LAUGH.

Although I have standard fees (see Services), please note that these fees are negotiable. I’m more than happy to work with your budget and needs to arrive at a fee that works for both parties. As I always say “I would rather perform for less money (i.e. less than a standard fee) than not perform because of money.” Honestly.

Upcoming Move

In early June our family is packing up and moving to Hawaii.  This has been a dream of ours for several years and over the past couple years we have been working through all the logistics to turn this dream into reality.  As sad as we are to leave Bloomington (we love Bloomington!) we are so excited to begin a new adventure in paradise.  This website has been changed to indicate that we have already moved to Hawaii, but we will be in Bloomington until early June and I am happy to accept offers to entertain through the end of May, assuming of course, my schedule allows.  The fees I charge in Bloomington are one-half those as shown on the website ... They have been adjusted to reflect the higher cost of living in Hawaii.  I would also like to take this opportunity to extend a huge thank you to all of you have invited me to participate in so many special events.  It has been an absolute pleasure!
