Coming up, in order to help the shoppers who are coming to the Downtown Oronoco Gold Rush Days, will be a list of the Vendors and where their booths will be set up. The list will be posted in just another week or so and it will include the Vendors names (sorted by last names) Their company name will be included if they have an official name registered with us.
So if you are looking for someone in particular but only know their first names, or only the Vendor name you might want to contact them before they arrive to learn their last names. Once they are here setting up their booths they might not hear their phone ring.
Of course you are welcome to stop by the information booth which is always located in front of the Post Office and ask for help. Carol is almost always there or one of the many volunteers who will help steer you in the right direction.
We want to Remind all of the Oronoco residents about the National Night Out event, that the donations from the Downtown Oronoco Gold Rush Days helps to sponsor. This is happening Tuesday August 7th, at the Oronoco City Park We hope you will come and bring your children.
Taken well before the crowds showed up! This got really busy about ten minutes later.
Along with Fire Trucks, the Sheriff and his canine companion, there are bouncy houses and gift bags for the children.
There are hot dogs or burgers with chips and sodas for everyone who wants one. And you get a chance to meet the volunteers of the Downtown Oronoco Gold Rush Days who will be cooking and working to give you a night to remember.
And if you stay long enough there are door prizes for the adults as well. Of course with the noise of the crowds you will have to listen carefully as the Oronoco Mayor calls out the names of the winners.
Before you leave please make sure you have wandered over to the table where they are looking for volunteers to sign up to help with this years Gold Rush Event.
It has come to our attention that there might be a misunderstanding about where the proceeds from the Downtown Oronoco Gold Rush Days goes. Besides the best Fireworks Show that has happened in Oronoco there are many organizations that receive part of the earnings from the Gold Rush Event. And if you come on Tuesday night you will get to see another example of how our NON-Profit organization,(Downtown Oronoco Gold Rush Days) does truly return the monies to the community. And you too can become a part of this endeavor by volunteering and attending the Downtown Oronoco Gold Rush Days beginning on Friday August 17th and ending on Sunday August 19th.
