It seems like it was one long Holiday week. Where my brother lives, the people start moving into the parks and into their summer cabins on the lake. Also they have mobile homes in the mobile home parks that they only stay in during the summer. It starts out with the big "move in" on Memorial Day weekend. They have a huge city wide rummage sale that weekend. Then the carnival comes to town several days before the 4th of July and sets up and the fun begins. A big parade is held on the 4th and this year the carnival stayed over for a few more days of fun. Their little town of maybe 8,000 grows to 20,000 easily during this time and a good share of the summer.
