Buckets of water are the easiest way (as cappy said). Buckets don't weight hardly anything going to and from the event and store inside each other. Tent stakes also work well but you have to worry about people tripping over them.

True, but then you always get a good laugh with that.

Re: tying down easy ups

Easiest thing to do is to tie it to the closest solid object. MH's trailer pits etc.
