I decided to make this thread because of the influence of Fashion Week up in NYC this past week. My friends who live in NYC always tell me what a big deal this is in the fashion world, not to mention NYC as a whole. With that said, what would be the biggest event in your locale? I'll start with Washington DC, and pick the Cherry Blossom Festival. This is when we pretty much have peak tourist season, not to mention the music and entertainment that comes with the festival. Another event we have, although this occurs once every 4 years is the Inauguration of a President. I almost forgot to mention the Kennedy Center Honors every December. This is a big deal as well.

In Houston, I suppose it's the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo, the world's largest, which drew a record 2.2 million last year. Its 20 days long, but its much more than just a rodeo, look it up for more info, since all the events that take part in it are too much to list.

up here in the middle of nowhere we celebrate many different things from Hotdog days in Tyndall to the turkey races in Pukwana to turtle races in Volin and of course we can't forget Check(sp)(Bohemian) days in Tabor but there getting to be a thing of the past because the police aka(revenue enhancement officers) have turned into a DUI fest-- to the point of no one can have fun- businesses are locking their doors and more people going on unemployment
