The annual Okra Strut in Irmo is back on.

Town council members have given a green light to the festival that's been going on every year since 1973.

The change of heart comes after the Irmo Village Shopping Center agreed to host the festival.

Earlier this year, town leaders cancelled the event because organizers didn't have a venue to host it.

Many residents were concerned about not only missing out on the fun, but they were worried about losing the revenue the event generates.
