Among the smorgasbord of choices that provide all the fun and excitement, one will find a slew of attractions that rely on porta-potties to meet the needs of the people, as well as contribute to optimized sanitation.
Have you ever wondered what would happen at large, outdoor events if porta-potties were not available? There are a variety of special events in Dallas that, legally, would not be permitted to operate without porta-potties, in place. Here is a quick synopsis of several extremely popular events in this part of the Lone Star State where you are bound to find porta-potties, doing what they need to do.

Bastille on Bishop
The Bishop Arts District of Dallas celebrates the French holiday, Bastille Day, with its annual event called 'Bastille on Bishop' ? a family-friendly festival where one can enjoy French wine, delicious food, live music, a market, and a petanque court in the middle of Bishop Avenue. The term 'petanque' refers to a French game, more than 100 years old, where hollow steel balls are rolled as close as possible to a small wooden ball, while standing inside a circle. The Bishop Arts District of the North Oak Cliff neighborhood boasts of being home to the largest French celebration in Texas!
