Holz Farm Spring Festival

"Friends of the Farm" and the Eagan Parks & Recreation presented the 24th annual Arbor Day Celebration and Holz Farm Spring Festival on Sunday, May 16. Crowds gathered for the ceremonial tree planting, pony rides, hay(wagon) rides, barnyard animal viewing, rope making and hot dog lunch. Eagan's "Women of Note" choir and "Men's Chorus" both sang on a beautiful, sunny, early Summer day. In honor of Eagan's 150th Anniversary, they also collected food donations for the Eagan Resource Center (foodshelf).

  5. Beautiful scenes so indicative of the Midwest. I remember the rope making with my son's cub scout pack. Looks like a lot fun that day for everyone!
