Do you recommend a raffle for the booths at Spring Fever?
You are welcome to do a raffle or something else to invite people into your booth, this is not required, though is recommended – it’s all about getting more traffic into your booth. Some of our vendors have face painters, balloon animal designers, and coloring contests.
Do sponsors need to bring their own banners?

Banners can be dropped off at the Farmers Insurance – Carolyn Weeks Agency office at 104 N Murphy Road, Suite 215 Murphy, TX. Commonly used size for a banner is 8’W x 3’H with grommets in the top corners.
Do we need to provide all the cinder blocks for set up?
You need to bring your 10×10 tent, tables, chairs, banners, etc; whatever you are featuring in your tent. Maybe water and some snacks.

Is there something we could offer that is different or needed?
The Allstate Insurance booth always does face painting and features a balloon animal designer and there is always a long line to get into their booth. One booth will be doing glitter braids, another offering riding tricycles, the Murphy Chamber Scholarship Foundation will have a ladder golf game and pinot palette painting activity Lots of ideas. You want to create a mailing list of those who stop by so give them a reason to sign up! Everyone loves to walk away with something and be a winner!
Any other tips to make this as successful as possible?
It’s a 6 hour event – make sure you staff your booth so that you all have a chance to take a break and walk around some, enjoy the entertainment and have a bite to eat. It’s always a good idea to bring something that people can walk away from your booth with. Face painter, balloon animals, photo booth, coloring contest, give-aways, etc.! The people manning your booth should enjoy speaking to the public.
