If the Pirate Parrot is confirmed to attend your event and there is a change in the date for any reason, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate the new date. If any changes occur after the date has been confirmed, please notify the Pittsburgh Pirates as soon as possible.
A PLACE TO CHANGE (NOT A PUBLIC RESTROOM). The Parrot does not come dressed in his costume. Due to the size of the costume, he will need a large, private room to change.
REST PERIODS. Due to the extreme heat inside of the costume, a rest period after 20 - 25 minutes is needed, depending on the type of appearance. After 5 - 10 minutes in a private room, the Parrot will continue the appearance.
SPECIAL REQUESTS. The Parrot is more than happy to adapt to your event. If you have a special ceremony or program that you would like him to be involved in, please contact the Manager of Promotions to discuss. Otherwise, the Parrot will go about his usual program, which consists of shaking hands, signing autographs and taking pictures with your guests.
PARROT HELPER. The sponsoring organization MUST supply the Parrot with a designated helper. This person will meet the Parrot upon his arrival, show him where to change and provide water whenever it is needed.
THE PARROT RUNS A TIGHT SCHEDULE. We are excited for the Parrot to be a part of your event. Please do not ask him to stay longer than the scheduled time.
AFTER THE PARROT HAS BEEN CONFIRMED
