This is gold.

Ellsworth Autumn Gold Days are here.

And what a transition it continues to be. It all started as a car show. In 1984.

And yes, the car show continues in 2023, as it has every year since the beginning. Now the 39th Annual Autumn Gold auto show is at the Home Depot parking lot and will host up to 200 classic cars on Saturday.

Union River boat rides take place between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. thanks to local captains donating their boats and time.

Downtown has a sidewalk sale and many other events and activities for all. Wonderful sense of community when virtually each and every business participates in the fun and activities.
