Stage Rental & Setup for the “Iowa City Block Party”

We had two stages at the first annual Downtown Block Party. Our runway was sub-rented and set up by another company and our 16′ x 16′ stage was set up by our crew. It was a great event with lots to see!

Fireworks stand/tent at Walmart Supercenter in Iowa City, IA for TNT Fireworks

TNT Fireworks logoWe set up this 30′ x 45′ frame tent for a fireworks stand at the Walmart Supercenter in Iowa City, IA for TNT Fireworks company. They open Friday, June 23, 2017, at 10 am until 10 pm EVERY DAY!

Due to restrictions of drilling into Walmart’s parking lot, we had to use cement bunker blocks 2′ x 2′ x 2′ to weigh the tent down.  As a result of that, it also couldn’t be a rope and pole tent, because that type of tent needs to be staked into the ground.
