Grays Harbor County fair which usually starts on the second Wednesday of August and runs through the following Sunday.

Elma Ponds is a nice place to relax on a sunny day. Fishing is possible if you bring a raft and float in the center of the pond. Not too many fish venture towards the shore as there are usually a lot of splashing kids around.
Briggs Nursery. Nuff said.
Schmitty's is a nice burger stand on the west side of Elma. Great milkshakes, better girls who serve them ;]
Juseppie's Pizza makes the best pizza in town.
