      Fresh out of my first trip to Florida, I went to this small town for a pumpkin festival on Halloween 2004. While the shows were good, the people were just horrible, both to me and to my parents. During the parades and festivals, I took a walk through town, nicely saying "Hi, how are you?" to everyone, and other than a group of cheerleaders from NIU who were apparently having a great time and handing out fliers for some type of event at the college, only 3 locals even said "Hi" back to me. The rest of them were some of the snobbiest and most standoffish people I have encountered. The only place with a worse social atmosphere I can think of is Bolingbrook, Illinois.
