Project Guild of LaGrange
wants to welcome you to Oldham County Day 2013 – ALWAYS the 3rd Saturday in July …this year July 20th!!!
Before all the excitement of the big day arrives, the Grand Marshal Luncheon is THE place to be on Tuesday, July 16th! The Grand Marshal chosen for this year is Kris Landers with the theme being “Peace, Love & Oldham County -- Loving the Game of Life”. Please make it a date, to show appreciation, to this community favorite, at the John W. Black Community Center from 12:00-1:00 p.m. The tickets for this delicious and entertaining luncheon can be reserved by calling Ann Brown at 502/222-0023.
Friday evening, Oldham County Eve on July 19th will give your legs a work-out!! Come out for the free City of LaGrange sponsored “Dancing in the Street” where The Vinyl Kings will play from 5:30 -11:00 p.m. This takes place after you’ve walked or ran the YMCA sponsored 1 mile or 5K race through our city streets. The food court will be open as well as several of our downtown eateries. Don’t forget your lawn chair if you want to relax those weary legs!
Our quaint town comes alive early Saturday morning the 20th with festivities beginning at 7:00 a.m. with the Rotary Club sponsoring an all-you-can-eat Pancake Breakfast at City Hall. Musical entertainment on any of the three stages begins at 8:00 a.m. The parade begins at 10:00 a.m. and don’t be surprised if the parade has to break to allow a train to pass! ONLY in a few towns across America does there exist, the charm of railroad tracks running through it! You will find many vendors situated around our Courthouse, a food court, and a variety of live entertainment throughout the day. The highlight of the day is the annual Tug Of War between the police and firemen. A Wild West duel with gunsmoke that went over excitingly well the past two years, is included as an event for this year, too. The Living Statues are back again and provide great interest! And to end this exciting day the City of LaGrange will again sponsor a free "Dancing in the Street" where the Allen Lane Band will play from 5:00 - 11:00 p.m.
Now we hope you have taken care of business by registering a decorated float for the parade. Oh, yes, they are judged with a FIRST, SECOND, or THIRD place ribbon and monetary awards are given!
