Another Fantastic Festive Weekend in Falmouth!

On December 10th & 11th 2022, Big Foot Events were delighted to work with Falmouth Town Team on their spectacular Festive Weekend! We have worked with our client at their previous Festive Weekend events, so we were thrilled to return and create an even more magical weekend! Read more about our 2021 event here.

The Brief

Our client approached us hoping to transform Falmouth town centre into a winter wonderland for their 2022 Festive Weekend! They wanted to increase footfall during the Christmas period and draw in new shoppers and visitors. The Festive Weekend needed to bring a special festive boost to the town centre. The event needed to be even more magical than previous years, improving upon the expectations of previous attendees!

The Challenges

We needed to build upon the successes of previous Festive Weekends, and make this year even more magical. In order to generate footfall and increase dwell time across the town centre, we needed to provide a range of entertainment throughout the area. Our entertainment needed to appeal to a range of ages, and encourage many families to visit the Festive Weekend! To create the impression of a snowy day, we needed to determine the most effective use of our Snow Effects. Covering the town centre in a blanket of snow would require the use of multiple Snow Machines and precise site planning.

The Solutions

Following the success of our previous Festive Weekends working together with our client, Falmouth Town Team were confident in our ability to deliver a magical event! To optimise space and maximise footfall, we located our entertainment throughout the town centre. We provided a variety of entertainment options at the Festive Weekend. All of our activities were festive, fun, and catered to visitors of all ages! We placed our Snow Machines across the area to provide a breadth of coverage. After experiencing first-hand how to deliver town-wide snow coverage at 2021’s Festive Weekend, we were able to make the most effective choices to provide the most authentic impression of a snowy day.

The Results

We brought Christmas cheer and snow to Falmouth’s Festive Weekend! We provided a variety of magical Christmas themed entertainment for the Festive Weekend. This included our stunning Giant Snow Globe and high-tech Snow Machines. We also provided a synthetic Ice Rink and Curling Lane! Many families enjoyed participating in snowball fights and taking snowy selfies in our Giant Snow Globe. Our Snow Globe, complete with imitation snow and themed props, provided a christmassy photo opportunity for visitors. Visitors to Church Street were greeted by magical snowfall! Our state-of-the-art Snow Machines created an authentic snowy scene across the town. The Festive Weekend felt like a true White Christmas. We also provided a fun break from Christmas shopping! Our synthetic Ice Rink drew in skaters of all ages (and abilities!), and our Curling Lane was a great challenge among families.

Our client was thrilled with the results: ‘Everything went really well! The Curling Lane was so busy this year – possibly even more so than last year! The Snow Globe was also really popular! Everything was great. Your teams on site were so helpful, so please pass on our thanks.’

‘We were absolutely delighted with the Festive Weekend and the overwhelming feedback from the thousands of people who came into Falmouth over the two days has been hugely positive! The town was buzzing, the atmosphere terrific, and we look forward to doing it all again next year!’
