Abstract:

"Goodbye sprawl-and-mall -- hello downtown! Long-neglected town centers are coming to life once again, and the buzz is back on main streets all across the country. Come celebrate their rebirth with this one-of-a-kind guide to over 700 local festivals and events nationwide. From the weird and wacky to the wild and wonderful, the fun starts with Main Street Festivals. Which will you do first? Inside you'll also learn where to find: an onion rodeo, cornstalk shooting, a beautiful baby bagel contest, arts and crafts demonstrations, the perfect-pierogie cookoff, a slug-burger fest, quilting exhibitions, farmer olympics, and more ... There's something for everyone in Main Street Festivals." -- Back cover.
