Oorang Bang

OoRang Bang 2024 | June 7th & 8th

All events will be held at 350 N.High St. 
(The site of the old Elgin School)

Oorang Bang is an exciting two-day street festival that offers an array of activities for attendees to enjoy. The event features a diverse selection of food trucks, craft vendors, live music, inflatables, and a beer garden that will be available on both days. On Friday, visitors can participate in the car show and parade, followed by a performance by Omega Kicks in the evening. Saturday kicks off with a pancake breakfast sponsored by and benefitting the LaRue Firefighters Association. The day’s activities also include a 5K run, the Cox Garden Tractor Pull, Duck Race, Cow Plop Drop, Craft Vendors, Kids Inflatables, and Live Bake auction featuring Ben Higgins as the auctioneer. Live music performances on Saturday include street musicians, Dulcimers, The Marionaires, Chad Clark, and Wulfman Jack.

New at the Oorang Bang this year will be Mann Made Rustics Chainsaw Carving. Two large carved Airedales, purchased by LCA will be located on the site of the new park.

We are collecting silent auction items and they can be dropped off prior to the Oorang Bang at Shear Skills Barbershop in LaRue or brought to any LCA meeting at 350 N High St.

We are looking for volunteers to help with the Oorang Bang this year. Contact Connie Kendall at [email protected] for information.
