About Pete and Chris

Pete and I have quite a bit of experience in the entertainment side of things. For nearly 15 years, we’ve participated in a number of different aspects and forms of the performing arts, including acting, singing, directing and producing.

In addition to that, we worked for a number of years at various amusement parks. To say we understand fun and entertainment would be an understatement.

So doing something like this which involves aspects of performance and behind-the-scenes know-how was a natural fit.

In addition to that, we just plain enjoy it! The smiles on the kids’ (and parents) faces is something to behold.

I know it sounds cheezy and cliche, but its true. When you do something that makes someone else have a fun time, it really is worth it.

So, yeah, that’s why we do what we do. Sure, it’s often tiring work, sometimes involving multiple days in a row of set up and break down, but it’s all worth it.

That being said, I am DEFINITELY looking forward to what the next year will bring to Pete & Chris Amusements.
