Video: Saugatuck celebrates being a coolest small town

We're tickled by this video of a victory parade along Butler Street in Saugatuck, Mich., which Budget Travel readers voted one of America's coolest small towns.

Representative Robert Genetski kicked things off by reading an official proclamation from Editor-in-Chief Nina Willdorf, and the crowd roared as he declared, "Even in bad weather, we know how to party!" Look for the gun salute, the Saugatuck High School marching band, and lots of enthusiastic, dolled-up locals, who kept the party going into the night.

Think your town is as cool as—or cooler than—Saugatuck? We're now accepting nominations for the 2011 edition of the coolest small towns in America. Nominate a town now!
