The Lebanon Area Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the Our Town, Your Town Celebration will return for its third year. The date of this year’s event will be Saturday, June 21, 2014 and it is shaping up to be even bigger and better than last year!
The Chamber has once again partnered with the Lebanon I-44 Speedway to hold this year’s event at the racetrack. General Manager Kevin Greven provides the perfect solution for a partner as the racetrack provides ample space for seating, parking, lighting and vendors along the midway.
The Our Town, Your Town Celebration will provide attendees an action packed evening with the Family Game Zone, a wide display of vendors, plenty of food and drinks for purchase, and the Nascar Whelen All American Series racing. For the evenings grand finale, the Lebanon I-44 Speedway will serve as an incredible setting for a live Country Music concert, as this year’s Our Town, Your Town Celebration features two of Country Music’s hottest up and coming stars – Joel Crouse and Ben Bradford with hits like “Don’t Tell Me”, “If You Want Some”, “Why God Made Love Songs” along with “Making Out in a Chevy”, “Tequila Makes the World Go Round” and “Million Miles of Free”. This live concert performance and all of the days activities and entertainment is again this year only $10.00 per carload to enter. “You simply will not want to miss this year’s Our Town, Your Town Celebration!” says Chamber Director Darrell Pollock.
On behalf of the committee, Chamber staff and Board of Directors, we would like to publicly thank the Lebanon I-44 Speedway and other area business sponsors, for the assistance in putting together a wonderful evening of entertainment for the entire family to enjoy.
