Something that might really help before you go out in public if he is normally well behaved (at home) is giving him lots of food before you go out places. We had a kid in our preschool co-op that was just off the walls and his mom started to just load him up with a protein shake and snack on the way (he is also 4) and he went from being off the walls to super mellow and easy to work with in just one class. If he's going out and hasn't had enough to eat/ the right type of foods/ eaten recently enough, it'll be harder for him. Also it's kind of like when you are at Thanksgiving and everyone stuffs themselves full and people either just sit around really quiet or sneak off for naps- all that food in your tummy just makes you tired and relaxed :smileyhappy: Hope this helps!
