Five years and still a very popular annual event – the Sulphur Springs Worldwide Photo Walk, which will be held from 4-6 p.m. or the “golden hours” on Saturday evening, Oct. 11 at the newly renovated City Hall in Sulphur Springs.

            Commemorating the event’s fifth year, a tour given by City Manager Marc Maxwell will be the highlight and a prime location with 100 years worth historical aspects for participating shutterbugs. An added bonus with many subjects will be the Hopkins County Fall Festival Battle of the Bands being held at Muddy Jake’s Sports Grille and Pub.
