Taking Your Thanksgiving Celebration Outdoors
Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful for the many things we have. And what better way to show your gratitude for those things than to make full use of them -- especially, your big-screen outdoor theater from Backyard Theater Systems!
Thanksgiving Day always offers spectacular once-a-year television events, from the Macy’s Day Parade to the national dog show to a hefty selection of football games. All this fabulous entertainment is crying out for display on the big screen, just as any holiday cries out for quality family time in the fresh air. Fortunately, your outdoor theater system allows you to enjoy both. Start early in the day (your family will probably be up cooking anyway, if you’re hosting a Thanksgiving feast) by setting up your QuikScreen, audio system and projector. Run an extra-long video cable from your home’s media device (satellite, cable box, etc.) out to your backyard system, test everything to make sure you have sound and picture, then shut it down again until you’re ready to put on a show for your guests.
And why limit your outdoor Thanksgiving festivities to what’s playing on the screen -- why not take the whole shebang outside, weather permitting? You can set up a long folding table or two near the viewing area, lay out your various Thanksgiving dishes and have yourselves an outdoor buffet. It’s the perfect excuse to have the game going during your dinner; you’re not being rude, you’re creating a huge holiday mega-event! The point is to think outside the box now that your video presentation capabilities have moved outside the house.
