The annual sawdust dig is a looked-forward-to tradition at Elk City Days. Kids here were digging Saturday, Aug. 13.

Another fantastic Elk City Days in on the books now. Rest up a week and start planning for next year! HA! Jackie Mackie did a fantastic job of announcing the Kids Parade.
She made each entrant feel special. Thanks Jackie!
