Big Fat Family Reunions

Whatever you spent on your last family reunion, it wasn't enough.

Macon, Georgia, saw a nearly $1 million economic impact last year from reunions, but Atlanta must have put them to shame.

Phyllis Lowe of Macon has a friend whose family reunion draws a crowd of about 1,000 people who pay a $250 fee, Lowe said.

"They have a budget of $250,000," Lowe said.

"Last year, they hired Chris Rock for the Wallace Family Reunion in Atlanta. That's a reunion." [Link]
