Celebrating July 4th Rain or Shine

The City of Taveres asked us back again (4th year in a row) to supply entertainment and fun for their Independence Day celebration, located at the beautiful Wooton Park on the shores of Lake Dora.

We provided several  inflatable’s to cover children of all ages, a bounce house for the little ones, the huge 60ft  Swamper Stomper giant obstacle course, 2 player Jousting and the always popular with the older kids a 30ft Rock Wall. We also brought out the Water Tag Maze which is great on hot days, the players get to soak each other with water guns while running around a tactical maze.

The music for the event was supplied by us with a live band playing a wide range of music for all ages.

As we all know here in Florida, you can pretty much guarantee it’s going to rain on July 4th …. And this year was no different! With all our summer events we always try to plan a rain back up, meaning a place the guests can go to keep enjoying the festivities. We also supply more suitable indoor games in case we have last minute change of plans due to the weather forecast.

However, this was the City of Taveres main event…. Where can you put a city park full of people??!! We went ahead with the event with an 80% chance of rain according to the local forecast, the local residents turned out in force for the party and braved the rain. There was a giant marquee for the band so people took shelter there and in the many Gazebos in the park during the worst of it.

The Water Tag Maze was open and busy throughout the rain, kudos to our attendant on this game who was soaked thru to the skin for most of the day! We kept the other inflatables open as much as it was safe to do so, deflating them trying to keep the insides dry and re-inflating them  and drying them off when the rain eased up.  The rain did let up in time for the fireworks which was a great display in time with patriotic music.

Thanks goes out to the local residents who turned out to support their local community and celebrate Independence Day with a bounce and a bang…..even in the rain!!
