A "hick" town in Western Mass that no one has ever heard of. It's located right next to Amherst, which is pronounced with no H as all Belchertown residences know. There are 3 different groups of Belchertown residences which include the "townies", the "hicks", and everyone else. The biggest thing that has happened to B'town in the past couple years is the new Stop and Shop. When driving through the town basically all you will find are banks/atms and pizza places, where you order grinders not subs.
All the preppy white kids go to B'town High, where the only way to sneak out of school is going through the front doors because all the side doors have alarms. Most of the high school kids are into partying, because there's nothing else to do. It's not uncommon to have parties where the parents are present, actually it's weird if they aren't there. At parties there's always drinking games played such as beruit (not beer pong) and circle of death (not kings) and dance parties are a must. It's common to have kids playing guitars and singing. Outdoor parties used to be the cool thing but kids quickly realized partying inside was much warmer, not that the occasional outdoor party isn't still enjoyed. Country music is not always listened to but if you belong to the "hick" group you do. It's common for kids to meet in the center when getting ready to go out. When going to the mall, Holyoke Mall is the place to go, Hampshire Mall is now the dead mall. In the winter time Hamilton Hill is where you meet to go sleding with your friends and other grades from Btown High.
B'town's biggest event of the year is the town fair. This is when Btown is at it's finest. Everyone comes home for it from college to see all their friends and everyone else in town, since the whole town goes. The fair is located on the common where it has games, rides, all types of local booths, and the pulling area. At the pulling area you will find the cattle pulls and the locals doing hay barrel tosses.
If you're from B'town you grow to love the small town life, even if things do get boring.
