Thousands of people stopped in Staunton this weekend for an international experience with a hometown welcome.

The Greater Augusta Regional Chamber of Commerce hosted the second annual Good Times, Tastes & Traditions at the Frontier Culture Museum.

Guests received a passport book that directed them to featured farms representing five regions of the world - West Africa, England, Ireland, Germany, and America.

"Not only can they come any day and visit the farms, talk to the interpreters, see the animals and the gardens; the chamber of commerce takes this festival - Good Times, Tastes & Traditions - and brings those featured villages to life," said Melissa Martin, the chamber's director of community development.

This year, the American site focused on farming in the Shenandoah Valley.

More than 250 volunteers helped out at the chamber's signature event.
