Last minute Saint Patrick’s Day event tent setup at Steve’s Old Time Tap in Rock Island, IL

When we say we got a last minute phone call from Steve’s Old Time Tap in Rock Island, Illinois about a Saint Patrick’s Day tent,  we mean at 10 pm (after we were closed) on March 16th the owner of Big Ten Rentals received a text message. The weather for Saint Patrick’s Day was going to be overcast and drizzling on and off for most of the day. So we set up a 30′ x 75′ frame tent with sidewalls to help block the wind. Luckily, the Irish kind, the event was held in a concrete parking lot so we used eyebolt tent anchors and didn’t need Iowa One Call or Concrete blocks. We were able to mobilize the staff and set up this amazing event. We hope to see them again next year.
