We love 4th of July for two reasons: it commemorates the birth of this great nation, and it’s also right in the early phase of summer. Businesses in and around the Seattle area can take advantage of this time of year to throw a patriotic-themed event. We know of a few 4th of July events ideas to help build your brand.
Support the Troops
Throw a special event honoring the brave men and women in uniform. Invite service members and their families for a family fun day. As part of the promotion, offer a discount or some other offer exclusive to active and retired members of the U.S. military.
4th of July Picnic
This is a good idea for restaurants. Rent an outdoor area with an open grassy field. Customers will be seated right outside with a blanket laid out on the ground. Ordered food items will be packed and served inside a picnic basket.
Summer Toy Drive
Toy drives should be year-round, and not just a seasonal thing during the end-of-the-year months. We recommend a typical 4th of July-themed event; just ask attendees to bring a wrapped and unisex toy.
Regardless of the type of event, you should set up a fence to separate the event area from the rest of the public space. You can make chain link fences and barricades feel less imposing and industrial by decorating them with bunting, ribbons, miniature flags, and hand-written banners.
Never forget the importance of a fence. This prevents event crashers and improves security for everyone involved. See our portfolio to see the type of fencing we supply for various Seattle-based functions. Rent-A-Fence provides fencing for 4th of July events hosted by residences, businesses, and the city.
