The mood is festive, rather like a "carnival". People from all around the region were in Maycomb. This is desturbing because of the heartbreaking travesty of f justice that was about to take place. This trial should not have even been happening.  Among the strangers the kids spot Mr. Dolphus Raymond, who's drinking out of a paper sack; Jem says that in the bag is a Coca-Cola bottle full of whiskey.
