September is one spectacular month in the Salina Utah area. The temperatures have cooled off, and the kids are back in school. Nature is showing some of her best work and this year is one of the most colorful years we have seen in some time.

It is worth the short drive to take your family for a mountain ride and see some of these great colors. Sometimes these vivid colors only last a few short days to a few short weeks. Make your day a little more enjoyable and just get in and go for a ride.

Enjoy Spectacular Salina.

 

Do you or your organization have an upcoming community event?

Sometimes events come and go, and few people know about it. For example in August there was an Acoustic Music & Potato Salad Festival at Acord’s Lake and only a few people knew about.

We encourage great events around the Salina area and want to help you promote them. If you want help promoting your event on the Salina City Webpage please fill out the form below. Remember we will only promote events around the Salina Area that promote community and are family oriented. Thank you.

Tunnel Service Project

fish lake relay service 2

For the Fish Lake Relay this coming weekend the teams will run down the frontage road towards Salina City Park. During the Tunnel Vision leg of the race the teams through the tunnel under I-70. In years past sometimes (most of the time) this tunnel is full of water and mud and runners either have to catch a ride or just get their feet wet.

Last week a group of woman took it upon themselves to clear, clean and paint that tunnel and make it a better environment for their fellow runners.

Thanks Sole Sisters for making Salina a great place to live!
