The 41st fun-filled “Great Day in Elk” will be held this Saturday, August 29, from noon until 7pm.
The parade starts at noon on Highway 1, with floats, tykes on bikes, Smokey the Bear and lots more. The carnival follows, with game booths and prizes and do-it-yourself craft projects for children. There's a $100 grease pole, a massage booth, a watermelon-eating contest, sack races, bounce house, crafts fair, a cake auction, silent auction and a raffle.
Daytime food includes Terri’s famous oysters, tamales, Caesar salad, fresh baked focaccia bread, Moroccan lentil soup, old-fashioned hot dogs and lots of homemade goodies. There will be fresh-pressed Greenwood Ridge apple cider and Elk's famous margaritas, along with soft drinks and beer.
The live afternoon entertainment includes the family-friendly funk of Soul Shakedown, belly dancing and juggling.
This year's dinner will be an outdoor barbecue from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m. featuring grilled tri-tip with polenta, black beans, salad and dessert and stuffed Portabello mushrooms for vegetarians.
