Birthday party for a 6 year old

My son is turning 6 in a few weeks so I decided to have his party at home this time around.  We're having a surprise "animal show" ( the person is bringing his own animals, it's all legit and everything is fine and he's great). Now if the weather is nice then everything is almost perfect -  we have a good size backyard and patio so the whole party and animal show can happen outside. If it rains then we have to take everything inside. We do have a big finished basement with a separate entrance and a bathroom and a kitchenette. I don't want any guests on the main floor (there are a lot of stairs and I don't want any kids running around and getting hurt).  Just not sure how to go about it. I don't want people to feel awkward either.

 

Am I just over thinking? How would you feel?

    A baby gate?  That will get the message across without people going up & down stairs.

    It was indoors.It was suppose to be outdoors but it was too cold that day. It was in April.

    All the kids loved the animals.I have to admit, i think alot of the parents enjoyed it. I know i did.
