During the old car fest in September, when people come from all over to show their vintage cars (like 1912 or earlier), there is usually a police man dressed from that era directing traffic through the village. There is a chapel you can get married in and a hall for your reception. You will find all modes of transport to get you in the mood of the late 1800s, early 1900s. There is horse-and-buggy, 1931 Ford Model AA Bus, 1913 Herschell-Spillman Carousel, Suwanee Steamboat, vintage Model Ts, and, of course, the steam train goes 3 miles around the whole village. The village is split into seven historic districts, and there are walking maps to show the village depending on what you want to see.

There is so much to see and not enough space to write it all.

If you choose to attend, take heart of these things. The theater is not huge. If you go for a mainstream feature film, get there early not only to guarantee a seat, but the earlier you are, the better the seat you get. We saw one of the Matrix films from the second or third row, and wooooweee that was too close. I was getting dizzy staring upwards.
