The Irmo Okra Strut now has a permanent place to call home. Irmo officials had a large grand opening event to open the new Town Park on Saturday, May 3, 2014 covered by WLTX News 19. The 14-acre property was mainly built to house the annual Okra Strut Festival, but people are already taking advantage of the amenities. The park features an amphitheater, two play grounds and a nature trail. Irmo Town Park is located on Eastview Road.
Located only 12-miles outside of Columbia, the strut began as a fundraiser in 1973 by the Lake Murray-Irmo Women’s Club to raise money for a new library. Today, it is the largest known celebration of the slimy green vegetable. The first day includes the Okra Strut street dance featuring two favorite beach bands. Saturday begins with a parade and a 10K Dam Run to Irmo. Festivities include more than 100 arts and crafts exhibitors, Okryland kids' area, okra-eating and -growing contests and a full day of musical entertainment.
Another good reason to move to Irmo, South Carolina, fun festivities and affordable housing, what more could you want.

""Mrs. Melissa Dille,
Now that we have finally dug out the stationary from the hundreds of boxes, we wanted to let you know how grateful and thankful we are for everything you've done for us. Not only were you patient and thoughtful for months on end, you were insightful, protective and beyond generous once we found a home. We couldn't have asked for a better experience or a better friend. It also helps that you are a great realtor. I don't know how we could possibly say "thank you" enough. You have a standing invitation over at our home. We love you and we thank you!" "
