Our town is, that is. Thos weekend our town with a population of 274 people will play host to thousands. It is our annual Fall Fest. Our streets become pack, cars everywhere but it is the largest fundraiser of the year for our volunteer fire and rescue. I live the festival but am happy when it is over also.

Sounds like fun, but probably good that it's only once a year!

It's difficult when events like that happen. We have several a year, but good for the local economy, so we adjust.

WOW, your town has a population of 274!   Do you enjoy living in such a little town? I  know some peopl do. :)

We thought the town we bought a house in to finish raising our 5 kids in, after Todd and I got together was super tiny, it had a population of 3,384 and the kids could walk anywhere in town easily. They use to have a yearly festival that attracted lots of people and it took over the entire downtown all weekend but was the most exciting thing that happened there all year. lol  It was only a few blocks from our house so the kids were always grateful for the excitement.  I always said it felt like Maybury from Andy Griffith reruns.. as soon as the kids grew up and moved out, Todd and I sold house and moved to a very populated area
