750-Person Carnival Crawfish Boil

We were so excited to have a part in planning a crawfish boil for Travis Roofing Supply and its employees that took place in their own warehouse! This event featured all of the carnival must-haves: rides, games, face-painting, balloons, live music, a petting zoo, and lots of great food! This event didn’t only feed and entertain 750 people; it featured 700 pounds of crawfish!

This outdoor gathering was abundant with crawfish, catered by The Crawfish Man, but we brought in a few other great food options as well to accommodate all guests, including the kids! Fancy Fluff ATX served cotton candy that matched the carnival theme perfectly. Red, White and Que Smokehouse set up shop to serve food too, and guests enjoyed frozen margaritas brought in by River City Frozen Beverages. There was no shortage of food, drinks, or sweets at this company crawfish boil — a total of 15 briskets, 30 pizzas, and the whopping 700 pounds of crawfish were served!

Along with the food, there were many other elements that kept everyone occupied. The kids in attendance had a blast with the petting zoo, face painting, games, and balloon animals. This event truly embodied that carnival chaos in the best way possible — there was never a dull moment! Towards the end of the night, everyone enjoyed some live music. This group gave so much life to this event and danced until the very end! A photo booth from Every Moment Counts helped to capture the memories made by all the families of Travis Roofing Supply employees throughout the evening.

 

The large space we had available for this event was integral in welcoming such a large number of guests and setting up so many activities. Events that allow you to take advantage of a larger, more open outdoor space (and in a season with the right kind of weather) open up a world of opportunity!

Planning this company gathering was such a fun and rewarding experience, and challenged us to pack as many forms of entertainment into one event as possible! We loved seeing how this night brought all of Travis Roofing Supply’s employees and their families together.
