Long time residents are fleeing and hordes of party seekers are arriving. I went out to take some photos and will have a lot more by the end of the weekend!
The roller coaster "Super Mouse" has been set up in the town square:
Carnival booths are setting up their wares:
and young men in hats are posing and demanding to have their picture taken.
