The Boston Celtics, Radio Disney, Carnival Cruise lines, the Liberty and Sugar Bowl Games, and in hundreds of parades including the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade, the Washington D.C. 4th of July and the Miss America Parade.

Demand for the Red Stars has taken the team all over the world including Germany, Russia, Ireland, Spain and the Czech Republic.  They have been featured in countless news articles and publications including the nationally distributed “Yankee Magazine” and were recently seen in thousands of households on the television show “Chronicle.”

Open Contest for Everyone

Meet Allie Nault, the winner of the first-ever Cherry Bombe Talent Show! The final competitor of the evening, Allie set fire to her batons, threw them into the nighttime sky, and won the judges’ hearts. She’s been twirling since the age of four and has even performed on the Great Wall of China. Fast forward to today, Allie had just started working as a sommelier at the Inn at Little Washington in Virginia. She was only five shifts into her new job when the much-lauded restaurant had to shut down because of the current crisis.
