It was quite the sight during a Thursday very early morning visit to Walmart in Taylor.  The parking lot was filled with campers, mobile homes, and people sleeping in their cars.  Yes, Peach Fest is in town.  Concert goers were hanging out here until the gates opened.  One of the store's cashiers said they were hopping all night and all morning.  People coming inside to use the bathrooms.  Groceries and assorted other supplies sold and on their way out the door.

Concerts aren't my thing.  I don't like crowds and I don't like noise.

However, when you see things like what's pictured in the photo above, you realize the economic impact of all those parties on the mountain.
