Local Traditions and Festivals

What local traditions do you have where you serve in ministry?

There are couple here that I never could have imagined before living in Indiana.
For Example:
The Newport Antique Auto Hill Climb – A bunch of people bring in modified (some more than others) autos to climb a big hill over Labor Day Weekend. Highest point reached/or best time to the top wins in each class. They even have a Beauty Pagent for the “Hill Climb Queen”.

The Covered Bridge Festival – 30ish covered bridges, 700,000+ visitors over a 10 day period. Keep in mind that the rest of the year, the whole county only has 18,000 people.

What happens where you are?
