Holt Hometown Festival needs you, too!

Because of plans to expand activities this year the Holt Hometown Festival needs volunteers more than ever!

The Holt Hometown Festival is spreading its wings. “It’s going to look very different; we’re very excited,” said Marcy Bishop Kates, executive director of Holt Community Connect, which oversees the festival.

This year’s festival is August 22. In addition to the traditional festival area between Kiwanis Park and the Holt Junior High School, there will be activities at Veterans Memorial Gardens, Holt Plaza and around the Holt triangle. You’ll still find the traditional favorite events— including the parade and fireworks, of course!—but this year’s focus is on expanding activities for all ages and encouraging people to enjoy more of what our hometown has to offer.

All of this means that the Hometown Festival needs volunteers more than ever! Holt resident Kelly Schalter is coordinating the festival volunteers.
