Saying Hello to our Favorite Outdoor Fall Events

Goodbye summer, hello fall!

It seems like just yesterday that we were kicking off our busy summer season with weddings, community races, parties by the lake, and those outdoor food and craft beer festivals that Michiganders love so much! But the summer has flown by and now we’re headed into autumn at record pace. Don’t let that get you down though! The fall has some of our favorite outdoor events.

Apple Picking and Cider Making

There’s nothing better in the fall than picking your own apples and making some fresh cider. When you bring the family to your local orchard, expect to see portable restrooms there for your convenience and sanitary use. Many farms rent portable toilets to supplement the bathrooms that they have on site in their gift barns or elsewhere on the premises. Farms with large u-pick businesses may have portable restrooms spread out across their orchards to give guests plenty of options when they need to use the bathroom. (In fact, some of the bigger farms may even be featuring luxury restroom trailers to wow guests. Either way though, apple picking is an awesome way to spend a nice Saturday outdoors!

Foliage Festivals

Fall is all about the colorful foliage! Many small towns across the state will have autumn kickoff parties where they celebrate the foliage as well as the tastes of fall. Often, local businesses will be included so that they can showcase their offerings during the change of seasons to encourage local purchases. Our favorite fall festivals typically include chili cook offs and bonfires, but that’s just our personal preference!

Game Day Tailgating

Football season means tailgating season! Good food and plenty of bathrooms makes game day tailgating an awesome way to spend a Saturday or Sunday with friends and family as you cheer on your favorite team. If you’re going to charge for your tailgate, you want to make sure to have plenty of upscale amenities like luxury portable restrooms to wow everyone you invite. If you bring in a restroom trailer, you’ll solidify your position as the supreme tailgate master! In fact, we guarantee that it will be something that people will talk about for the rest of the season!

Outdoor Music Concerts

Fun outdoor concerts don’t end when temperatures start to drop. Some of our favorite concerts happen in the fall, and bring with them the cozy feeling of bundling up with your closest friends to camp out and hear some great music. If you’re organizing a music festival, don’t forget the shower trailers in addition to the regular porta potties. (Just because it’s not hot our anymore, doesn’t mean that fans won’t end up stinky if you don’t give them a place to get clean over the weekend.)

Event Planning – How Many Portable Toilets Will I Need?

The most common question we get in this business is “How many toilets will I need?”

We get asked this by regular people planning private events as well as seasoned event planning pros alike, so we wanted to take the opportunity to break it down for you.

Regardless of the size of your event, having enough bathrooms is crucial in ensuring that guests will be able to enjoy themselves. No one wants to have their guests waiting in long lines (or leaving) to use the bathroom! That’s why it’s so critical to get it right from the outset of your event!

(Trust us, you don’t want to be the guy calling frantically asking to have more porta potties delivered mid-event!)

Use Our Planning Chart

We have a helpful chart to help estimate how many units you’ll need for your event. It’s a grid that simply multiplies the number of hours for your event by the number guests expected. As a general rule of thumb, you can expect that one porta potty unit can service up to 50 guests for up to 3 hours. For events where the number of attendees is unknown, you should round your estimates up to prevent finding yourself in a situation where there aren’t enough bathrooms for all the families and individuals that show up.

Consult the Pros

Our planning chart provides an estimated number of units that you’ll need, but if you want a more customized recommendation based on the type of event and the geographic size of the event, you can always give us a call at 888-320-9992 and we’d be happy to help you out!

As professionals, we have many years of experience in the portable restroom business, which means that we know best when it comes to rental toilets. We know when to recommend luxury restroom trailers versus standard porta potties, and we have all of the add-ons that you’ll need to keep your event sanitary!

Scale Up or Down

If the event you’re planning has been held before, you can scale up or down based on your previous experience. Typically this means learning from past mistakes and getting more toilets and trailers than you’ve had in previous years to better accommodate guests.
