ABOUT THE MISSION:
The Oconee County High School Warrior Marching Band will be playing the national anthem around 1:30 pm, right before the race. We will have the ladder truck, police cars, EMS, as well as a KidZone that includes a dunk tank that our sheriff and police chief are going to be in, plus bouncy houses, obstacle course, live entertainment, games, and more.
