Now that Memorial Day has come and gone, it’s officially summer. During the summertime, many people host outdoor events to take advantage of the sunny weather and longer days. If you’re hosting an outdoor event, it’s important to consider where your guests will use the restroom. For events being hosted in areas without easy access to restrooms, portable toilets can be the ideal solution. We’ve compiled a list of the top ten summer events that require portable toilet rentals to help you plan for your next event.
1. Road Races
During the summer, there is a surge of road races. 5k’s for charity, half marathons, and obstacle courses often take place in the summertime, and always take place outdoors. Because these races are outdoors and cover so much ground, access to restrooms can be a big problem. Portable toilets are the best way to provide restrooms for racers and attendees during road races. They can cover the ground of the entire race and provide quick use to allow runner to get back to their race quickly.
2. Fairs and Carnivals
During the summer, towns, counties, and organizations will often hold fairs and carnivals. These events are often pop up and travel around, meaning they often do not have permanent restroom structures. For this reason, portable toilets can be very useful during these events to provide easy access to restrooms. Even at established fairgrounds, portable toilets can still be very useful to ensure that there is easy access to a restroom no matter where you are.
3. Outdoor Parties
As the weather gets warmer, you might consider hosting a party or barbecue outside. If your event will only have a few people, you'll probably be okay letting your guests use the bathroom in your home. However, if you're planning on more than twenty guests, portable toilets might be a good idea. Additionally, if you host the party in an area without restrooms, portable toilets are a necessity. Food and drink will increase the need for access to restrooms, and alcohol will increase it even more. If you will be serving food and drink to your guests, portable toilets can provide easy access to restrooms for your guests. Portable toilets will also eliminate the need for guests to spend time in your home when they should be outside enjoying the party.
4. Concerts and Music Festivals
The summertime is the prime season for outdoor concerts and music festivals. Whether the concert lasts one day or is a multi-day event, guests will need access to restrooms. This need increases if your event serves food, and even more if you’ll be serving alcohol. Renting portable toilets for these events is the best way to make sure your guests will have access to restrooms at outdoor concerts. They are also easy to place all around a venue, ensuring that guests will never be far from a restroom.
5. Fireworks Displays
During the summer, especially during the 4th of July, fireworks displays are everywhere. Typically, these displays take place in open fields, on beaches, or over water, meaning there is no easy access to bathrooms. Portable toilets are the ideal solution to provide easy access to restrooms for your guests. They will ensure a comfortable experience for your guests and increase the length of time your guests spend at the event.
