That's interesting.  I have never seen live entertainment at an open house.  Wonder if the man playing the flute was the home owner who wanted to stay, but be incognito.

Yes. There have been many types of entertainers.

Still in the same entertainment line of thinking I have used ice cream carnivals as the event for some of my open houses.  And the promise of the adventure is Vinegar, olive oil and french vanilla combine to make one incredible Pina Colada flavored treat.

Pet Homing organizations are also partners that work well with open houses.
