August Summer Event Line-Up in Eureka Springs

The bittersweet month of August heralds the downhill slide of summer. I always have mixed emotions this time of year. There is no doubt that summer sunshine is warm and plentiful, and there is ample time for vacations and family fun, there comes with it a sense that time is winding down. I love that sense of freedom summer brings and no other season seems to reproduce. This probably comes from the time I spent every summer growing up in rural North Dakota farm country. Summer was the perfect time to explore the farm, swim in a creek or local swimming pool, ride bicycle around town (because back then it was safe to do), or play under a street light until you were yelled at to come home. Now that is freedom!

There is also no denying that once we launch into August, fall starts to rear its head. If our summer plans haven’t been completed, they soon will be, and we are forced to start thinking about our plans for the next season. Undoubtedly the freshness of Spring is a tiny sweet picture in the rear view mirror. I will admit to one consolation with the end of summer – the end of summer chores.

Eureka Springs is still at full Summer tilt, and there are many events and activities to top off the Summer. Grab your family, sweetheart, or BFF and head to the Ozarks and the eclectic village of Eureka Springs.
