Oct. 8 & 9th, 2011

C'mon down to Alley for the annual Haunting of the Hills. Enjoy traditional Ozark storytelling and music amid the beautiful setting of the Alley Mill and Alley Spring. Traditional Ozark craftsmen will be demonstrating skills of yesteryear on the grounds.

More details and scheduled events will be available as the date approaches.

This is also the weekend of the big Scenic Rivers Craft Show at the Circle B Campground near Eminence. There's plenty to do amid the spectacular fall beauty of the Ozarks this weekend, so c'mon down!

If you have a traditional Ozark craft or skill you'd be willing to volunteer to present, please let us know! Call 573-226-3945 after May 1, 2011 to discuss volunteering to help at this event.

ALL ACTIVITIES ARE FREE! (And no, it's not spooky, everything is suitable for all ages.) We do suggest bringing a flashlight and a lawn chair or blanket for seating.
