It’s raining outside right now, but summer will come eventually and with it come a host of outdoor events including concerts. Even though it feels like summer is a long time away, events take a long time to plan, so there’s no time like the present to start.
Where do you intend on holding the concert? Popular outdoor concert venues in the Portland area include the Clark County Amphitheater, Oaks Park, Columbia Meadows in St Helens, the waterfront, and some Portland Parks. Be sure and get all necessary permits and insurance for your event and know the requirements and restrictions of your venue.
Once you determine where you are holding your concert, find out what amenities the venue includes and what you will need to provide. Start with a stage, and a sound system. You may also choose to have lighting if the event is going to go on after dark. A generator may be required if power is not readily available for the equipment you are using for your event.
One of the biggest challenges with holding a concert in the Northwest is the weather. Be sure to have a plan in case of rain. Make sure to provide cover for your performers and consider tenting part or all of the audience if the forecast calls for rain. With all the planning and hard work that goes into putting an event on, you do not want to have to cancel because the weather did not cooperate.
Audience members can sit or stand on the grass or you might provide bleachers or chairs. Many concerts have premium seating areas close to the stage. If you are charging admission, you will need to be sure the facility is secure enough so that people cannot just walk in and out at will. If there are not sufficient bathrooms at the venue, provide porta potties and sinks.
Concessions often provide much of the income for events, so have vendors selling a good selection of food and drinks. Beer gardens are also very popular at concerts.
Of course the most important part of any concert is the music. Popular bands draw their own crowds while less known acts will require more publicity.
Do you watch game shows on television and shout the answers out to the television? Do you ever wish you were the contestant instead of whoever the show picked for the week?
Why not host your own game show? Game shows make great entertainment for parties and events or set one up as a fund raiser or stand alone function.
So what games can you play? A variety of games are available. Like Family Feud? Try the family friendly “Fabulous Feud”. Are you a fan of Wheel of Fortune? Give “Spin to Win” a spin. Tune in regularly to Jeopardy? Try your luck at “the Challenge”. Like to watch “Who Wants to be Millionaire”? Check out “Take the Deal”.
Don’t see the game you want to play or have an idea for a unique game? Events Unlimited can help you make your idea into a reality, whatever game show you want to play.
Recently at a family goods consignment sale, a balloon artist made a teddy bear for my son. It took him a few tries as a couple balloons popped as he tried to make the complicated bends and turns, but the finished balloon sculpture was amazing. Frankly I am surprised that any of the balloons survive to make a sculpture with all of the twisting and bending they go though. I can’t even blow those thin balloons up, let along make animals out of them.
Balloon sculpting reminds me of origami, but instead of folding paper, the person is folding a balloon which could pop at any moment. The concept is simple and you can find instructions for making basic balloon animals online , but to get really good at making the sculptures takes a lot of practice and a bit of luck.
A balloon artist is definitely a skilled craftsman and many of them are talented entertainers as well. Kids love watching creatures take shape out of the balloons and the finished creations make great party favors. To add a little extra fun to a party, get a balloon artist who is dressed up in costume as a favorite character or a clown. Balloon artists are wonderful for birthday parties and all sorts of events, especially events with kids involved.
