Palikkala was build by 30 AFOLs and TFOLs all around to country and there were definitely lot to see.I had my Humppa-Pub there, two modules, but it was a very little area compared to some AFOL's efforts of dozens (or hundreds?) of modules. LUG members Lönkka (Marting Lönqvist) and R2-D2 (Pekka Pihola) had heaps of modules around the town while "A-Klaani", a LEGO family from the eastern border, had their own quarter wing (More of that later).
The cool thing about Palikkala was that it seemed like a really working town: For 3000 citizens there was plenty of apartment building, farm for food supply, elementary school for education, military forces for national defence, obligatory hospital, fire brigade and police station, working road, rail, and river transportation, couple of skyscrapers (the taller one, Lönkka's Daily Planet, was 215 cm tall), management building, shops and outlets, a big outdoor market, many interesting landmark and, of course, plenty of attractions for entertainment: Pubs, a disco, a cinema district, entertainment park with a huge minifgure statue by PtLeskinen and a couple of sport events.

There were, of course, plenty of other stuff than the city. On the back of our area there was a viewing point of KastleVania 4, 146-minute excellent brickfilm by Hovinet team, with giveaway DVD copies of the film and a cool Vania-themed MOC frame on the television showing it. Next to it was Zwenkka's and his friend's NXT XBOX Disc Changer, which was joy to see on move.
