LIVE OAK’S JUNE BUG RETURNS
The third annual Live Oak June Bug Festival will take place on Saturday, June 18 in historic downtown Live Oak. Activities will be centered around Millennium Park in the 100 block of West Howard Street, Highway 90.
Event plans are well underway for this signature event of The Live Oak Partnership. This year’s event will offer a magnitude of activities and fun for the entire family. Beginning at 9 am and continuing until 9pm, this event will feature a live entertainment throughout the day, Warren Street will be buzz with a large car show going on until 2:30 in the afternoon, followed by a parade at 3:00 as the car show leaves the festival site. Plans also include a Tractor and Golf Cart parade and show at the same time. Other highlights of the day include a Homemade Ice Cream Contest and plenty of things to do with the entire family, including artists, crafters and children’s activities.
