American Gothic Days in full swing

Saturday marked the second day of the 42nd Annual American Gothic Days in Eldon.

The streets of Eldon were lined with cars and the sidewalks packed with people all attending the various festivities.

American Gothic Days is a weekend-long celebration of the historical monument that is the American Gothic House.

â??Today we started with our 5K run/walk at 7:30 this morning. There's been a parade, wine tasting happens today, a book sale, BBQ chicken dinner at noon time -- there's a rodeo this evening at the fairground and all sorts of other things,â?? said Holly Berg, American Gothic House Center Administrator.

Berg said this is a great time for the city of Eldon to come together and celebrate what the city has to offer.

Sunday morning there will be a morning bike ride; registration begins at 6:45 a.m. at the American Gothic House Center and the ride starts at 7:30 a.m.
