CORNING (WENY)---At the end of this month we will find out if the Crystal City is the most fun small town in the country.  Today dozens of locals joined together to spread the word loud and clear by shouting, "Corning is the most fun small town!"

The Crystal is in the running to be America's Most Fun Small Town and they don't want anybody to forget it. Steuben County Visitor Bureau President, Peggy Coleman says, "It's been almost a month since they've first been here and we have to keep it fresh in their minds, in the travel channels mind, in Randy Mcnally's mind that we are a fun place."

The Crystal City made the top six, out of more than 650 small townsnominated to be the "Most Fun".

Isabel Gilroy, a Gaffer District resident and employee says, "I think the beauty of the area, the variety of things to do there are museum that are wonderful and Market Street has so many shops and there are activities. It's something for everybody....young and old."

Sean Lukasik for CreAgent Marketing on Corning's Market Street says, "You have such a tight knit community and businesses and people who live here helping each other and working together. It's the best place to be in the summer."

Corning could be the second Steuben county town to get national recognition, joining America's Coolest small town, Hammondsport.

Kim Price,Communications Director for the Steuben County Conference and Visitors Bureau says, "It's like lightening striking in the same place twice we couldn't ask for this kind of exposure, it's amazing and it makes my job so easy and so much fun!"

The winner will be announced July 25th on the Travel Channel.
