Covid-19 Update

See all update related to Covid-19 precautions at the Strut

The 48th Annual Lexington Medical Center Irmo Okra Strut kicks off opening ceremonies on September 23rd in-person at the Irmo Community Park. Safety is our primary concern at The Lexington Medical Center Irmo Okra Strut. We ask each person to make the best health decision for themselves and others by following the most recent guidelines of the CDC and State of South Carolina.

Extra hand sanitizing stations will be available throughout the park. Social distancing and mask wearing is encouraged. Please use your best judgement of your own health in attending this year’s Okra Strut as COVID-19 is still a known concern in South Carolina.
We are looking forward to an Okra Strut festival as close to normal as possible, with a great line up of entertainment on Friday the 23rd and Saturday the 24th, the Saturday morning parade, and numerous food vendors and craft fair exhibits.

We hope to see you healthy and happy at The Lexington Medical Center Irmo Okra Strut.
