If you’ve been a loyal resident of your home county for many years, then you’ve seen innumerable things that saw the county through its ups and downs. What better way to pay tribute to the community than a county fair? However, pulling it off is no mean feat, as eHow contributor Anise Hunter explains:
…planning a county fair is a large undertaking. To begin the planning process, you need to consider your audience and the resources and locations available to support the fair. This will allow you to decide where and when to hold the fair as well as determine the fair’s ideal audience. It is quite reasonable to create at least a one-year time line when you decide to organize a county fair.
The Idahoan outdoors in December are not quite conducive to county fairs due to the cold in many places and the fact that the holidays will occupy most people’s time (aside from the odd winter market). However, it actually gives fair planners much to think about if the event is, say, a few months down the line. As such, organizers may consider firms like Rocky Mountain Roll for help with arranging party rentals in Boise.
County fairs, by tradition, often involve events that are highly relevant to the community; to this end, Hunter suggests holding brainstorming sessions with as many members of your community as possible to gather the most viable ideas. The budget, the funding sources, and the schedule should also take shape during the sessions and tasks should be be delegated into special committees. Scheduled meetings over the next few weeks or months may add other elements into the equation, such as the choice of venue, arranging of vendors, and parking plans.
The theme of the fair can play a role in the kind of attractions you’ll lease from your event support provider. An examination of the company’s offerings may show some attractions that can fit right in, such as a wall-climb for Boise rock climbing professionals and inflatable structures for children. Adults-only sections of the fair can have gambling booths.
A county fair is a chance to show off the place’s wonders to the public. Having a company like Rocky Mountain Roll in the loop works in your favor.
