We are sometimes asked about what kinds of events are photo booths most used. The answer is weddings followed by corporate events. We are not limited to those types of events in any way. Graduation parties, in-home parties, and birthday parties of all ages.

This article is an excellent discussion of birthday parties for the little kids. http://www.reddirtphotobooth.com/2018/04/16/8-reasons-why-you-need-a-photo-booth-for-your-childs-1st-birthday/

Wedding planning is hard work, especially if you’re the bride-to-be. Amidst all that chaos and busywork, sometimes you don’t need unsolicited advice from everyone in your life. Sometimes all you need is some damn zen.

Laura Hartley here, the Director of the Wichita Boathouse, home of the KSHOF Kansas Sports Hall of Fame. There were two things I loved as a child - history and sports and now as an adult I am blessed to have a job that combines both these loves. Sports unites us like very few things in this world and the history of sports is the history of our communities. Going to a Conway Springs Athletics football game with my grandma, cousins, aunts and uncles, watching a Wichita State Shockers men's basketball game with my parents or playing sports with all my school friends - these are the memories that color my childhood. This December, my co-director, Jordan Poland, and I have made a commitment to raise $25,000 for the Kansas Sports Hall of Fame and we are very close to that goal. Please consider giving to the KSHOF Kansas Sports Hall of Fame and help us keep the history of Kansas sports alive! Conway Springs, Kansas Go Shockers
