Default basic question

OK, I am going on a road trip and will be doing balloon animal busking. Not a problem but the question is when I pull into a town how do I identify places where families are so I can set up and make balloons for tips. I tried a Mall food court and was promptly told to get out by mall security so that's not a good idea.

Thanks for any clues

perhaps the answer you are looking for is in this book: Only $35

That book assumes you are working local and don't travel. I want to work while on the road, say pull into Podunk ID and do some balloon busking to make money. Where are the family hang out spots?

You do research before you go anywhere. The internet is full of forums where mums and dads discuss places to go with their kids.
If a name of a place comes up more than once, to an image search to see if you can gauge how many people hang out there.
