11069504_572133202923651_2587519859493311068_nWhen Tanger Outlets announced it was bringing 70 retailers to Southaven in 2015, residents of Northern Mississippi and the Mid-South were ecstatic. When the outlets open in November, it will bring around 900 full and part-time jobs to the area.

But before construction begins, a ground-breaking is due. And for this important event, the weather was fairly dismal and uncooperative. But Mahaffey Tent and Events knows how to stay crisp, clean and dry even outside.

When we pull into an empty lot, we want to make a space that ensures that the next people who pull into it ... the guests ... see a venue.

And when they walk inside a Mahaffey Tent, we want them to experience your vision for that event, not just by being clean, dry and comfortable but by seeing an organized space with attention to every detail, whether it's flowers, table settings, lighting, HVAC, audio/video or fine linens.
