  EUREKA DAYS 2006  
 

 
 
Eureka Days 2006 - Fun, Friends and Family was an overwhelming success!

The attendance at the event surpassed all previously established records on both days of the event. It was estimated that there were over 40,000 guests at the event over the course of the two day event held on September 8th and 9th.

 
There were several improvements to Eureka Days 2006. Most notably was the expanded beer garden area including live musical entertainment and even a big screen television so no one would miss the games on Saturday afternoon.  Rails O Fun was also a wonderful addition for the smaller kids that wanted to take a ride on a small scale, fully functioning locomotive and train cars. The event even began with a classic car cruise from Holiday Inn at Six Flags and concluded on the event grounds with a car show that contained over 60 classic vehicles and provided the best ever opening to the event! The Eureka Sports
Association was also active within the event, for the first time and offered "friendly" inter-Eureka based team games on Saturday.
 
As always, the Sh-Boom and Smash Band concerts were extremely popular as many people took to the street to dance the night away. And the fireworks were a wonderful conclusion to the entertainment for the 2006 event and
surpassed all expectations!

Now that the 2006 event has come and passed, the Eureka Days Event Committee is already working on producing the 2007 event. Some exciting developments planned for next year include an enhanced children's area, new and exciting attractions, more carnival rides, possibly even several offbeat athletic tournaments, a "Eureka Idol" karaoke contest and improved parking to accommodate the number of guests the event now attracts. Please be prepared for more off-site parking and courtesy shuttle services from various strategic locations around the event grounds to make your visit more convenient in 2007.

The Eureka Chamber of Commerce and the City of Eureka would like to thank the numerous organizations that comprise the Eureka Days Event Committee and made this event possible. Without the continued support and involvement of such organizations as the Eureka Fire Protection District, American Legion O'Brien Post #177, VFW

Memorial Post #5468, the Eureka Jaycees, the West St. Louis County Lions, the Eureka Park Board, the Eureka Pacific Elks, the Wednesday Club of Eureka, the Knights of Columbus Eureka Council 3511 and the Eureka Sports Association and individuals such as Peggi McCartney, Jennifer Gebhart, Steve Wojtowicz and Shenee Boyle, this event would not be possible nor be the success it has become. It is truly a special event due to the sheer number of people and organizations involved in production. It is a great example of a grass-roots effort by the Eureka community and should be a point of pride for the entire area. Cathy Armfield, the Eureka Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors representative and one of the leaders of the Eureka Days Committee put it best when she said "it was a great TEAM effort by everyone involved!"
 
 
 
Everyone involved in the event would also love to extend our gratitude to such organizations as the Pacific High School ROTC program and the Eureka Parks and Recreation Day Camp staff, in addition to the numerous residents and Eureka Chamber of Commerce members, for volunteering their time and talent over the course of the event to help out in several areas. Spirit of St. Louis Credit Union, Farmers & Merchants Bank, American Family Insurance, Eureka Family Dental Care, The Sports and Physical Therapy Center, Ameristructure, Inc., Rockwood Bank, Pioneer Bank, AmerenUE, SSM/St. Joseph's Hospital of Kirkwood.

We look forward to seeing you next year at Eureka Days 2007!!
