Crush, Texas
Back in 1896, a passenger agent for the Katy Railroad suggested a novel way to get rid of some of their recently-deprecated locomotives: crash 'em together in a free public spectacle to promote the railway. They borrowed a tent from the Ringling Brothers, set up an isolated track out in the middle of nowhere, and invited the general public to come see.

40,000 people showed up (making the temporary town of Crush the 2nd most populous city in the state) and the event was indeed a smash. Pity about all the dead and injured spectators, tho.
