Pallets On The Town

If you’re a Universal Pallets fan, you may well have noticed we have a fondness (nay, obsession) with pallet crafting and pallet art. With a firm belief that our pallets should go on to do great things that make people happy once their careers in logistics are over, seeing a project like Pallets On The Town really speaks to our pallet-obsessed souls.

Well a few like-minded pallet fans in Campbellford, Canada have just celebrated their second annual Pallets On The Town event on the 4th August. At the heart of the event is a competition, to win you must enter a piece made from pallets in your choice of the following categories:

  • Art
  • Garden Decor
  • Home Decor
  • Furniture
  • Fan Favourite

 

The event also gives local green businesses the opportunity to reach out to environmentally conscious consumers, with vendors selling upcycled items to visitors.

And for visitors there’s more, activities such as Giant Jenga, Pallet Dominoes and magicians are all on-hand to ensure visitors have a fun-filled pallet day out.
