As spring approaches, your city’s downtown comes back to life. The weather warms up, we gain an extra hour of sunlight during the day, and people are looking to get outside more. They want to find community events where they can see new sights, meet new people, and have fun. All cities, big and small, have certain events in common that always occur as early as March through May. Now is the time to refresh your community spaces for the increase in visitors. Think about which upcoming spring events your city has planned and determine which patriotic and custom products you need to purchase. Below is a list of the most popular spring events for cities and the products we recommend you will need.

1. Parades

Parades for St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Cinco de Mayo and Memorial Day will be here before you know it. Visitors attending the parades will notice your city sidewalk, street and building decorations as much, if not more, than the parade. As people walk to and wait for the parade to start, what impression do you want your city to make? Your city’s flag displays (U.S. Flags, State Flags and City Flags), Street Banners and Patriotic Decorations (Bunting, Fans, Banners) will help grow your city’s sense of community pride. Once the parade starts, the participants will need to get the crowd excited with their fresh-looking parade products such as:

2. Marathons and Concerts

We offer Custom and Stock Floor Mats and Carpets to stop dirt and moisture from entering your buildings while preventing visitor slips and falls to make sure your events run smoothly.

3. Festivals, Craft Shows, Antique Shows

Festivals, Craft and Antique Shows bring many vendors and visitors into a small space. It is best to organize the event, so vendors are easily identifiable and have their own working space to share their products or entertainment. Pop-Up and Canopy TentsBanners, and Advertising Flags to help bring attention to the vendors while maintaining the flow of crowd traffic. Table Coverings at each vendor’s workspace provide an attractive display while easily identifying what they are selling. Along with event crowds comes a lot of trash.
