Approximately 5,000 people came out to downtown Holt on August 17 to enjoy Holt Fest, formerly known as the Holt Hometown Festival. Now in its 20th year, the festival kicks off with a parade and features live music, great food and plenty of family-friendly activities. This year’s Holt Fest was held on Cedar Street at the Holt Farmers Market, Veterans Memorial Gardens and Senior Center to highlight the new downtown improvements as a result of the Realize Cedar project.
“Thanks to our wonderful sponsors and all those involved, the 2019 Holt Fest was a success,” said Chuck Grinnell, Holt Fest coordinator. “Everything went off without a hitch. Plans for next year are already underway.”
