Even though this year’s Fourth of July is midweek, you can still celebrate America’s 236th birthday to the max! And hopefully, celebrating will make the work week and the heat wave fly by a little faster. If you are throwing an event for Fourth of July, there are a couple things you should remember before you start up the festivities.
We’ve gathered Five Things You Should Have for your Fourth of July event, but of course any event can benefit from this check list. Check out our recommendations:
5. Print out a guest list.
When you are logged in to your ShowClix account, you will see several icons located to the right under your event title, including “Admissions” with a little clipboard. Click that icon to see the Guest List option. Once you click Guest List, you will be taken to a screen with all of your attendees listed. Simply “View Printable Version” and suddenly you’ve made all your guests feel like VIP since they are definitely “on the list!”
4. Make sure your devices for scanning are fully charged.
Always have a power source and a way to recharge your batteries (your own and for your scanning device). Make sure you have a solid internet connection so that Axess can work properly without any snags or delays. Test and retest scanning a ticket before the crowd comes your way.
3. Have a First Aid Kit on hand.
In case of emergencies, a first aid kit is essential at any event. And we all know fireworks and barbeques can be dangerous endeavors if not handled with care, so make sure you have a first aid kit this Fourth of July. You can DIY your own first aid kit, or find one pre-assembled at any pharmacy, grocery store, or even some gas stations. Make sure you at least have bandages and medicine!
2. Water, water, water.
In this heat, water is a must. Make sure you have enough for yourself and for your volunteers and guests. It is critical to stay hydrated in the summer months, so make sure you have access and plenty of water. Sometimes the most obvious things (like having fresh water available) get forgotten. While we’re on it, don’t forget the sunscreen as well.
1. Your tickets, of course!
If you are attending a Fourth of July event, make sure you have your tickets already printed out or know where they are located on your mobile device. If you need to reprint or resend tickets to your phone, log in to your account at My Tickets. You can change the name on the tickets, view event information, and easily print out your tickets at home. Need help navigating My Tickets? Learn more on our support site.
Have a safe and happy celebration for America this year!
