REV is hosting two pop-up photo booth events in October to celebrate the Magic City. The “I love Birmingham because…” pop-up is about providing a space for Birmingham yaysayers to express their love for the heart and soul of our region—Downtown Birmingham. We’ll have a photo booth that can capture both photos and short videos, which will be available for purchase from the vendor at each event.
Why do you love Downtown Birmingham? Tell us at our pop-up photo booths in October!
That’s Kayla Stinnett, our yaysaying partner at Iron City Social, giving you a little preview of what to expect from our photo booth events!
All images and footage will also be used to round out Downtown Birmingham’s new website, launching soon, with local faces and local takes on downtown. Make plans to come out and share why you love the Magic City and help us celebrate something BIG coming soon!
Pop-up Photo Booth Details:
@ The Pizitz
11AM – 3PM (during Art Crawl!)
in partnership with Creative Entertainment and Iron City Social
@ Good People Brewing Company
6PM – 12AM
in partnership with Trailer Park Photos and Iron City Social

With summer just around the corner, kids will soon be out of school and insisting on getting out of the house. Luckily, Downtown Birmingham has an abundance of family-friendly activities that will keep your kiddos entertained and create lifelong memories.
We know taking kids out for extended periods can be challenging; that’s why we have curated a list of experiences designed to be enjoyable within a manageable 3 – 4 hour timeframe. This way, both children and parents can make the most of their time without feeling overwhelmed or exhausted. These four experiences include lunch options and are tailored to different ages and personalities.
