When the weather warms up and the flowers and trees begin to bloom, Atlantans know that we can count on having a handful of festivals to choose from every weekend. From Inman Park to Alpharetta, Decatur to Downtown, it seems that every neighborhood has its own signature celebration that draws thousands of people to a single park, street, or city block every year.
While themes of the area’s festivals vary widely – holidays, food items, and local flora & fauna all take a turn in the spotlight – they do have a number of things in common: they provide locals and out-of-towners alike with the opportunity to come together over a common subject to enjoy and benefit the host community. Providing festivalgoers with a place to sit back, relax, and enjoy the event is a duty that all festival committees share, and one that is particularly important during the hot, sunny Saturdays that characterize an Atlanta summer. Setting up tables topped with promotional umbrellas is a great way to make sure that attendees stick around and enjoy themselves.
Trees, tents, and promotional umbrellas can all provide some much-appreciated relief from sunshine (and rain) within festival grounds, allowing visitors to take a break without having to miss any sights and sounds – at the Atlanta Dogwood Festival’s Beer Garden, pictured above, festivalgoers could enjoy their food and drinks underneath Corona Light promotional umbrellas near the event’s main stage.
