I ran a 50 amp receptacle to the outside then built myself a 8 circuit panel mounted in a weatherproof metal box with a male cord end so I can unplug everything after the seasons over. I will post a picture of the panel tomorrow. Nice and clean way to do it. Also used individual gfi plugs so the whole show doesn't go down if you have an issue with one device. Luckily Im an electrician so I could do it myself

Ended up with 2x 20A circuits. Cost about $175 all together as I went with the waterproof 12/2 wire, the run wet covers and needed a drill bit and the two breakers inside. Also, add about 25% overhead because I'm in Canada and just got the stuff from the local Home Depot. I'm sure if I went and found someone I could of been a bit more thrifty. Attached is the results of the 3.5hrs of labour.
