Dusk - Fireworks off Siloam Mountain thanks to The Elms Hotel & Spa

Best Week Ever
With storms cancelling Waterfest, there was one event that managed to pull something together for its participants!
Opal Wapoo Gravel Experience worked quick to change their route when flooding jeopardized the race and continued on! They are definitely getting the best week ever!

Coming Soon
Disappointment was felt by all when our beloved Waterfest was cancelled due to weather, including our fireworks display. But never fear, because The Elms Hotel & Spa will be providing fireworks on July 4th off Siloam Mountain hill! Best viewing is from the downtown! Be sure to give your thanks to the Elms and Happy 4th!
