The mythos of the masked vigilante lives on in his hometown of Oxford. Bring the next generation of “rangers” downtown to The Lone Ranger Festival on Saturday, Aug. 5, 2017 to celebrate the legacy.
The festival officially kicks off at 10 a.m. but the real fun starts at 11 a.m. with a parade through the downtown area. Line the streets early to catch a glimpse of The Lone Ranger and his Native American partner, Tonto.
After, wander the downtown area to catch additional special guests, including Ronald MacDonald, General Custer and PAWS the Detroit Tigers mascot — plus other family-friendly programming like fire acts, aerial performances and more.
