It has only been 3 weeks since the last shopper loaded up their treasures and the last vendor pulled out of Oronoco and we are already preparing for next year's show! Before we get too busy planning next year's event, we'd like to take this time to thank the vendors, shoppers, volunteers and citizens of Oronoco for contributing to another amazing Downtown Oronoco Gold Rush Days. Without all of you, this show would not be possible!
As time goes on, Downtown Oronoco Gold Rush Days continues to evolve to with the ever changing market. Antiques and vintage goods will always be the highlight of our show but we strive to add events that will create a well rounded experience for the whole family. This year we added a Car Show to the lineup of weekend events. Cars paraded down Minnesota Avenue on Saturday afternoon and were led to a lot where visitors could browse through all the vehicles and vote on their favorite vintage car.
The 2nd annual Downtown Oronoco Gold Rush Days 5k was a great success! Runners enjoyed the new route that led them along the streets of Downtown Oronoco and vendors enjoyed cheering on the runners as they raced past their booths. Plans are already underway for the 3rd annual Downtown Oronoco Gold Rush 5k on Sunday, August 23rd.
The best part of Downtown Oronoco Gold Rush Days will always be browsing through through the hundreds of vendors who bring their unique goods from far and wide to share with our shoppers. This year was no exception! Shoppers came away thrilled by having found the treasure they were hunting for and vendors left with a lighter load and a few new friends. Downtown Oronoco Gold Rush Days is a special show, one that will continue to please shoppers and vendors alike for many years to come.
Mark your calendars for next year's show, the 3rd FULL weekend in August. Friday, August 14th, Saturday, August 15th and Sunday, August 16th.
