Downtown Orange was the place to be Saturday with the Orangetober Fest going on at the boat ramp and it was also Depot Day at the historic train depot near Green Ave.
During the Orangetober Fest the Chamber sponsored the Gumbo CookOff. Congratulations to Chef Ricardo and his team from First Pentecostal Church of Orange for winning Best Overall and also first in chicken and sausage gumbo.
Also a duo from Louisiana known as the Throwing 4’s won first in the Cornhole Tournament sponsored by United Way.
The Depot Day featured model trains, a petting zoo, a balloon artist and the Orange Blossom Dancers featuring Ms. Boehme who is 101 years old.
