Talimena Scenic Drive Weekly Updates

Scenic Drive Week of 10/24/2022

We are beginning to see yellows! The temperatures are getting cool in the evenings which will help bring out the orange and reds.

We have finally received some rain which should help the trees. Unfortunately with the extreme drought we experienced this summer, a good portion of the trees turned brown before the fall season but we still have plenty of green that can turn! The first weekend in November is historically the best weekend to view. Come enjoy the Scenic Drive Saturday, November 5th and enjoy end to end fall festivals! Talihina will host their 34th annual fall foliage festival featuring arts & craft vendors, food trucks, live entertainment, classic car show, and quilt show!

Mena AR will also have a festival at the polk county fairgrounds.
