Earlier in the school year... all the Clear Spring School students from 1st through 8th grades made percussion instruments in woodshop. This last weekend, they had public performances in the City Auditorium and in Basin Park in downtown Eureka Springs as part of the Eureka Springs 59th annual Folk Festival.
