If you have been to Coconut Grove recently, you have likely seen Irina Patterson, the Balloon Lady, at least once. Wearing her trademark whimsical balloon crown, she has become a familiar face as she twists and turns balloons into a wide range of characters from monkeys and dragons to lizards and ladies.
The Russian-born entertainer, who is many ways embodies the fun spirit of Coconut Grove, is available for events and parties large and small. “At the end, I look around the room filled with my balloon creations , and think... Ahh, I am in the right business, “ says Patterson. “Where else you can create so much havoc and get paid for doing it?” Call or text at 786-301-2456
