DENVER (AP) - Crested Butte leaders are deciding whether to grant permit to turn the historic mining town into the fictional "Whatever" town for a controversial Bud Light ad campaign.
Town councilors are holding a special meeting Thursday night to vote.
The Denver Post reports the vote comes as fencing is already being installed for the planned Sept. 5-7 event, which has divided the town.
Bud Light has been working with town officials on the plan since the spring but word only leaked out recently. In the meantime, Bud Light has been promoting the mysterious event online.
Bud Light marketing director David Daniels says the company picked the town for its beautiful location and reputation for having fun.
Crested Butte is known for having lots of events with residents in fun costumes.
