The intrepid Holt Hometown Festival committee began working months ago to put together this year’s celebration. Each year the committee strives to make the festival better than ever, says festival director Chuck Grinnell.
“It’s a mix of the classic elements and the new,” he says. Classics include, of course, the parade (11 a.m.) and reworks (10 p.m.). In between, there are other favorites like entertainment, kids’ area with inflatables, and food and vendors, all at Holt Junior High School.
This year, the Holt Community Arts Council will hold its 2nd Annual Makers Expo and craft beer tent in conjunction with the Hometown Festival. The Holt Lions Club will also host its “Touch a Truck” event at the festival for the first time, while the Holt-Delhi Historical Society is again planning some activities. And before the reworks wrap up the evening, there will be a concert at Holt Junior High at 8 p.m.
Want to help? The committee is always in need of volunteers and sponsors! There are countless ways, large and small, to get involved.
