Rent a Searchlight for Your Party
It's time to shed a little light on things. Renting a searchlight or skylight for your party or wedding will bring attention to yourself in the best possible way. Curious on how to use your searchlight? Read on for some of the most clever ideas Willie Fun Events has seen.
Shine a Light for All to See
You might have seen bright, waving pillars of light at movie premieres or even advertising big sales at a major store. Those are called searchlights or skylights. They were developed in the early 20th century, and were originally used by the military to dazzle and disorient enemies so they misfire their weapons or even crash planes or boats. The military also used them to increase ambient light for nighttime raids, by shining them on the bottom of clouds so their light would reflect to the ground.
These days, searchlights and skylights have a far more friendly application. As a searchlight cuts through the air, it draws people's attention to the event and lets them know something important is happening there. And if people are curious, they can follow the light to its source and see what all the fuss is about -- whether that's a white-hot sale, a grand opening of a store or a red carpet gala.
It's possible, but rare for an event to use just one searchlight for attention. It's far more likely to have at least two, and perhaps as many as four or five. The different searchlights' beams of light move in different directions. Slow motions are stately and calm while still drawing attention, whereas quickly or erratically moving lights generate excitement. Willie Fun Events will work with you to figure out how to make your searchlights match the theme of your event.
Lights for All Seasons
Bad weather? No problem. Searchlights make a particularly powerful impression on rainy, foggy, snowy or cloudy nights because of how the particles suspended in the air catch and refract the light. So long as your event is still on, searchlights will make a powerful impression on attendees and the general populace.
Searchlights generally don't make as powerful of an impression during the day. The exception is if it's overcast, foggy or rainy. In general, save your searchlights for nighttime events, like wedding receptions, gala parties, grand openings, or charity events.
