Show the community: Visits to Party City store locations throughout the year

This data is so much fun. This weekend I put together a line chart race GIF showing the relative visits to Party City store locations throughout the year. I expected the huge spike for Halloween, but I was surprised to see some holidays show up as significantly as they did.

If you want to look at the details more closely, the final frame is included in a comment on this thread. Here’s a link to the associated Reddit post.

I used SafeGraph Patterns and Python (matplotlib and gif libraries). Enjoy and let me know if you have any comments/questions!

It’ll be very interesting to see how this year’s Halloween fared once October 2021 data is released soon. Curious to see how it does relative to Halloween during 2020. Also, love the Halloween color scheme!
