Back to School: Looking Forward to Fall Events

football-828218_1280
It’s hard to believe that September is just around the corner, and for some parts of the United States school has already begun. While the back to school season is bitter sweet for many, there is so much to look forward to. There are the academics, of course, but outside of the classroom there are so many extracurricular events that take place throughout the fall. Looking forward, it’s hard not to get excited!

Now is the time to consider how you’d like to shape your year. What sports teams or social clubs would you like to try out for or get involved with? With each activity comes a different set of schedules and commitment. Extracurricular activities can get busy, but being a part of a team or group is an enriching social experience that you’ll always look back on and remember fondly.

If you’re a sports enthusiast, taking note of your favorite team’s fall schedule is definitely something to look forward to. Whether its football, soccer, or the cheerleading squad, participating in any of these teams as a member or as a sports spectator will definitely mean marking your calendar with fun! While some events might be free, there may be events that require obtaining tickets in advance. Plan ahead to purchase tickets so you don’t miss out on exciting events.

What other clubs and committees are available at your school? Do a bit of research and make sure that you know what the options are. From chess to debating, drama to dance, student council to singing, there’s something available for any student’s taste. Each club will have their own fall schedule for meetings and special events. Check your school’s club listings to find something that will be a good fit for you, and if you’re really lucky your school might even offer a Club Day where the groups showcase their offerings.

Homecoming is an annual autumn tradition and many people, towns, high schools, and colleges will likely be coming together sometime in late September or early October to welcome back alumni and former residents. What does your school have planned for homecoming this year? Will there be a banquet? A homecoming dance? Will your school have a football game, or another sporting event? Homecoming is such a great way to feel connected to your school and to your community. Check the date for your homecoming events and make sure to circle it on your calendar.

It might seem early to think about it now, but Halloween is just around the corner and, as the fastest growing holiday, it can also be the most creative and playful. If you’re a spook-enthusiast you might start thinking about your Halloween costume now. Take note of any special Halloween events and dances that will be taking place at your school so you can participate. You might even like to get involved with your school’s event organizing committee. From the decorations to planning theme music to arranging the tickets and promotions, volunteering is a great way to socialize and be connected at school.

Behind the scenes of any of the autumn events taking place at your school, there is always a hard-working organizing committee. Consider volunteering with your school’s committee of hard working visionaries. Many hands make light work, and it can be a very rewarding experience to join in the planning efforts with other school-spirited volunteers. Organizers of any of these school team events should start thinking now about how the events will play out. Now is the time to get the right tickets to make sure that your event goes smoothly. Check out the vast array of tickets at Worldwide Ticketcraft to choose the tickets that will be right for you.

We hope that you have a smooth transition back to school and that this fall is eventful and productive for everyone.

Colorful, Durable Wristbands are Perfect for Back to School and Autumn Events!

Carnival

Between back to school and autumn – there are plenty of opportunities for fun activities for the entire family! If there is one thing that all of these events usually have in common (besides being super fun!) is that many of them require the attendee to be actively moving about. And the last thing that anyone wants to keep track of while having a good time is their event ticket. This is especially true if you have little ones in tow or will be getting wet (bobbing for apples, anyone?)

We offer a great alternative for the active event goer, our affordable, colorful and durable wristbands can be used in lieu of traditional tickets. Each wristband comes with a tamper proof tab printed on tear resistant and waterproof material, which means the risk of lost tickets is virtually impossible. Custom text can be added to our pre-made designs, or you can create a completely original look by uploading your own. If security is also a priority, sequential numbering is offered at no additional cost – making your event security a breeze.

Here is a list of some family activities, all of which would be perfect candidates for wristband tickets – if you are hosting any of these events, you should definitely consider them:

  • pumpkin patches
  • haunted houses
  • fall carnivals
  • holiday boat parades
  • breast cancer 5k
  • hayrides
  • school dances
  • school field trips
  • holiday home tours
  • corn-mazes
  • ghost tours

Aside from offering verification at admission, our convenient, colorful wristbands are a great way to determine age appropriate activities, such as adult vs. child rides and alcohol consumption at the beer garden – our bright colors make them easily visible from a distance too, even in the dark!
