Summer Carnivals | Planning Your Outdoor Event

This is the season for carnivals and outdoor events! Are you an event planner planning a corporate picnic or private event? Are you planning a community festival and looking to do a carnival theme? If you can answer yes to any of these questions, then you should read this article. Below is a list of ideas, concepts and things you should think about if you are planning an summer outdoor event.

Carnival Themes – That’s right you can do more than one theme!

Decorate your carnival themed event in the style and groove of Jack Sparrow. Add “pirates revenge” to your event and let guests step aboard a pirate ship. Customize the 6 player Water Race to see which pirate has the best aim. Decorate the surrounding areas with various decor. Or decorate your carnival in the traditional feel of Coney Island. Add classic carnival games such as the horse race, coke bottle ring toss, milk bottle knock down, bushel basket toss and more!


Plan The Flow Of Your Event By The Games

Whatever style event you are planning, it is important to plan the flow of games. If you put games to close together that draw large crowds in one area, your guests won’t walk through the rest of your event. They will tend to stay bunched up by the more popular games. Consider spacing the larger games or more popular games out and putting less popular games nearby. This will allow guests to have more space by the more interactive games, have other things nearby to occupy them and force guests to walk around and mingle. For example, a game like a Roll a Ball Horse Race might attract long lines of people who will want to keep trying their skill.

Plan A Shade|Dry Area

If you are planning an outdoor event in Florida during the summer months, then it is a good idea to consider a rain plain. While it doesn’t always storm for long, Florida can have micro showers or pop up storms. If you plan to have a space for this, such as a large tent, then that does two things. First, it gives your guests an area to go to for shade and to cool down. Second, it allows your guests to have somewhere to go to get away from those brief rain spouts that are all too common during the summer.
