Happy Memorial Day!

militarytruckHow much do you know about the history of Memorial Day? Did you know it was originally called Decoration Day, or that it started as a holiday to remember soldiers lost during the Civil War? Memorial Day became a federal holiday in 1971, but long before the official date was set, Americans celebrated and honored military members who died while serving in the U.S. military.



Don’s Johns is a proud supporter of many local military events

At Don’s Johns, we love supporting our military through local events and volunteer groups. We have supplied portable restrooms for past races like the Marine Corps Marathon and the Army Ten-Miler. We’re also proud supporters of the Wounded Warrior Games hosted by Willing Warriors, and we’ve been on site for the Air Show at Joint Base Andrew’s. Recently, we provided emergency services for Arlington National Cemetery so they could keep the cemetery operating, and in December we helped them with Wreaths Across America.


Marine Corps Marathon

This year, Don’s Johns will be providing portable restrooms for Rolling Thunder, an annual motorcycle rally held in D.C. Their mission is to educate, facilitate and never forget by means of a demonstration for service members who were abandoned after the Vietnam War. Over 100,000 people come out to show their support, and we’re proud to be a part of that crowd again this year.


Rolling Thunder

Memorial Day also marks the unofficial start of summer. So while many people spend the weekend participating in parades or visiting memorial sites, other popular activities for the weekend include barbeques, pool parties or heading to the beach. For those hosting parties at home, we offer a variety of portable restroom units to ensure maximum guest satisfaction and eliminate time spent waiting in line for a restroom.

How do you plan on spending your Memorial Day?

We’d love to hear about any special traditions or new plans you’ve made for this year! Our team will be enjoying the day off, but we’ll be doing deliveries before the weekend to help the Washington, D.C. metro area celebrate. How ever you decide to celebrate, keep an eye out for our portable restroom units.

Thank you to all who have served in the U.S. military! We are grateful for your service and honor your dedication to our country. Happy Memorial Day everyone!

Make It an Unforgettable Event with Luxury Restroom Trailers


The warm summer nights, the cool winter days, it really doesn’t matter when you host an event, it can be the most memorable of all. It requires careful preparation and thoughtful planning. An unforgettable event can’t be planned overnight. You should have delectable foods, fine wine, servers, and luxury restroom trailers.

Opt for Style and Comfort

If you’re looking to have an opulent event, you want it to be stylish and comfortable. Contrary to popular belief, those attending galas and such want to be more than just a pretty face in the crowd. Women wear their high heels and men look amazing in their tuxedos; however, they are surely uncomfortable.

Your event can be stylish and allow them to be comfortable in a Presidential Luxury Restroom Trailer complete with air-conditioned units. Have you thought about how people frequent the restroom when they are at hotel or banquet halls? It’s the same concept, just brought to your guests at an outdoor event.

Keep Everyone Clean and Fresh

Depending upon the event, you can also keep everyone clean and happy with portable sinks scattered about. As your guests eat finger foods or sip on wine, they may need to clean their hands. It’s also a great sanitary practice to keep sinks or hand wipes available as people meet and greet new acquaintances.

Enhance the Décor with Restroom Wraps

Restroom trailers can be extraordinaire. You usually see portable restrooms as the standard blue. However, Don’s Johns offer full trailers and you can enhance the décor with restroom wraps.

These wraps come in a solid color, or you can have a custom wrap matching your events color palate. In addition, you can decorate the inside of a restroom with chic paper hand towels. Place a few baskets on the granite counters and fill with rose petals.

Easter and Porta Potty Rentals – Yep, they go together!

Easter and Porta Potty Rentals in MD, VA & DC

dons-johns-easter-porta-pottyEaster egg hunts are a tradition in the Maryland, DC, and Virginia areas. Party planners have a lot to think about and ensure they accommodate infants, tots, teens, and adults. Most Easter egg hunts come complete with plenty of games, crafts, petting zoos, food, entertainment, and pictures with the Easter Bunny. So if you are planning a party on a schoolyard, church, or other open space, be sure to have a porta potty on site.

Have Your Porta Potty Blend In

Most Easter events will start with Easter Breakfast or Lunch. So before the kids head out to have some fun, they’ll need to clean up. Keep them entertained and in the Easter spirit with a fun and festive looking Porta Potties with our restroom wraps. Once inside the luxury trailer, parents can fix their child’s hair just right in the full-length lighted mirror over the beautiful granite counters right before taking pictures with the Easter Bunny.

Adults Aren’t Able to Participate in Many Egg Hunts

porta-potty-easterAs sad as your adult participants may be about it, they can’t always participate in the Easter egg hunt. They are sure to enjoy any beverages served while waiting for their child. So, if you are expecting a large crowd, the DJ4000 Restroom Trailer is a climate controlled environment restroom where parents can take a quick restroom break. This is great for volunteers to have access to as well.

Once their kids are back, the parents will want to give them a potty break. The Luxury Restroom Family trailer makes it easy for parents with small children, and there are three additional stalls for women and men, reducing the wait in line.

Must Have Sanitizing Stations Throughout The Area

You also must remember that with so much food around, you need to keep children’s hands clean. They will have played with the eggs, grabbing them off the ground, as well as have many arts and crafts projects and played with the zoo animals. So keep plenty of Hand Sanitizer stations around. It’s also a good idea to have a Quad Wash Station set up throughout the event area.

Don’s Johns look forward to helping you plan your Easter egg hunt event or any other special occasion.Contact us today for a free quote or call us today at 877-986-4538877-986-4538. porta-potty-rental
