Loranger (pronounced Lo-RAHN-jer) is an unincorporated community in Tangipahoa Parish, Louisiana, United States. It is the location of one property listed on the National Register of Historic Places in the parish: the Loranger High School Auditorium.
It is the location of Loranger Elementary School, Loranger Middle School, and Loranger High School. Each school serves a wide geographic range of families living in and around the very rural Loranger area. The Loranger School District is bordered by the school districts of Folsom, Amite, Independence, and Hammond.
The community has two grocery stores, Loranger Supermarket and a Dollar General, a donut shop, a tanning salon, a beauty shop, many different houses of worship, a popular snowball stand, and a restaurant called Chris's (formerly Tallo's).
Each October, people from all over the U.S. travel to Loranger for a two-day event, Old Farmers Day, held on the Brunett family's farm. The event portrays the way our forefathers lived, worked, and enjoyed rural life. Life in Loranger revolves around sports (mainly football), the annual Mud Bogg held during the summer months, and other activities popular in this region, such as hunting and fishing.
