It’s a small community, just a little over 200 people, but they do things in a big way. Every year in August, they host one of the North Coast’s best celebrations-Great Day In Elk. The day begins with a parade…not a large one, but one where quality is definitely emphasized over quantity. Everyone falls in behind the last of the parade and follows it down to the Greenwood Community Center. There, music, food, a greased pole climbing contest, a cake raffle and a myraid of other events run into the late afternoon and lead up to a community-wide dance that evening.
It has been a “don’t miss” event since I moved here three years ago.
