American Gothic Days right around the corner

Itâ??s that time of the year again for American Gothic Days, a fun filled weekend that the city of Eldon has been putting on for more than 40 years.

Gothic Days kicks off Friday June 7 and runs through the 9.

Friday night there will be a supper in the park along with live music.

Saturday morning starts with the Gothic Days 5K Run/Walk at 7:30 beginning at the American Gothic House Center.

Of course the streets of Eldon will be full of floats for the parade starting at 10 a.m.

This year organizers are mixing it up and including some new attractions.

â??But one of our most exciting things this year is we are opening the Opera House this year for the first time. We'll have a play there on Friday night at 7:30, Saturday afternoon and Sunday evening. And this is called Smoke on the Mountain. It's one that was done in Branson, Missouri but weâ??re doing it with folks from around this area,â??

Smoke on the Mountain will be put on by the American Gothic House Performing Arts Center.
