On Saturday, the sun was warm, but the air was crisp -- my idea of the perfect fall day and the perfect time to attend a fall festival.

Growing up in Arkansas where the biggest cultural event is the annual Wal-Mart Shareholders Meeting, I would watch "Gilmore Girls" and wish that I lived in Stars Hollow, CT, a fictional town that had a different themed festival almost every weekend. My beloved Lorelai and Rory would roll their eyes at yet another Stars Hollow event and would then revel in the small town charm of it all.
