EVENING SHADE INN BED AND BREAKFAST NEWSLETTER
Eureka Springs, Arkansas
August, 2011

We hope you are faring well in this summer heat. We’ve had to water our plants daily to keep them from dying since we haven’t had any measurable rain in weeks . Hopefully the worst is behind us and cooler days will be arriving soon. We’ve had many visitors from Texas in the last few weeks that come to the Ozark Mountains for a respite from the sweltering heat. The evenings have been pleasant with temperatures in the 70′s and a few guests have chosen to have breakfast outside to enjoy the cool mornings. Kids will be going back to school soon and we hope you’ll take some time for yourself to relax in Eureka Springs.

There’s always plenty of things going on in Eureka Springs and this month is no exception. Events this month include the 17th Annual Yards and Yards of Yard Sales. Hosted August 5th and 6th, Yard Sale bargains will be all around town. Maps will be available at the Chamber of Commerce so you can locate the sales in our city-wide sale. New this year, the Eurekan Biking-swimming-foot race triathlon, with lots of activities for family members of the athletes, August 12-14. Participate or come watch the athletes compete for the title of THE EUREKAN. Join us for our 2011 Annual Bluegrass Celebration August 19-21! Rain or Shine.
