Beat the Heat with Avalon Event Rentals

July 19, 2022

If you want to stay calm and beat the heat at your next special event, Avalon has few rental items to make these long hot summer days just a bit cooler, and maybe a bit more fun! Whether a backyard barbeque, family reunion, wedding or other event, Avalon Event Rentals has everything you need to be “cool” - including the largest tent rental inventory in the Okanagan Valley! So how should you keep cool?

Keeping it Cool

There’s nothing worse than warm drinks on a hot day, so make sure you can keep your beverages nice and icy! So what do you need to keep those sodas, beer & other drinks chilled and frosty? How about:

Coolers, ice tables and galvanized tubs: Fill them with ice, fill and forget! With have coolers and tubs that hold up to 300 cans of your favourite beverage, you can keep all your guests happy with cold drinks all night.

For the adults at your next gathering - what about a keg cooler and tap to enjoy your favourite malt beverage?

If you want a place to store food and beverages to stay cold over longer periods, how about renting fridges or freezers? You can grab some freezies or ice cream too for the kids for a quick and easy dessert.

Stay Hydrated

As the temperature rises, so does the need to not only cool down but also keep your guests hydrated! Luckily, you’ll find everything you need here, including:

Snow cone machines: So simple! Grind a bit of ice, add your favourite flavouring, and viola! - an ice-cold snow cone, the kids (and adults) will love you and everyone will stay comfortable.

Slushie machine: Be the “coolest” parents on the block and rent a slushie machine! Make your own slushies, have the kids sell their creations curbside for fun, and when the kids go to bed you can make an “adult” beverage by adding your favourite libation. Makes a perfect party rental too!

Specialty glassware: If you want to make martinis, bellinis, margaritas, or a good old rum and coke, we have the specialty glasses to cradle your cocktail. For those with pools to keep cool, we have acrylic glassware and dinnerware to keep your pool protected.

Have Some Fun!

Whether a fundraiser, kid’s birthday, block party or really any kind of event, there’s nothing as fun (or as refreshing) as a turn in the dunk tank! Get your friends together and place your bets on who stays dry...

Keep your event or gathering stocked for guests with bars and barware for a few guests to a few hundred. Find everything you need, including blenders, to make, mix and pour all kinds of concoctions to help your guests enjoy. Bartender not included!

Chill Out

At Avalon, we have a number of styles and types of fans and misters to help keep you cool on those 30+ degree days. We have floor fans and quiet whisper tent fans that can be mounted, as well as portable misters and larger industrial “power breezer” misters. Regardless of the size of your event, get what you need to keep your guests happy and comfortable.
