Each year on the first Saturday in August, the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library Association celebrates Herbert’s Hoover’s birthday at Hooverfest. Visitors enjoy entertainment, food, arts, crafts and fun throughout the day. The event ends with a wreath-laying ceremony, a special tribute to Iowa’s Everday Heroes, and fabulous fireworks display choreographed to music.
Local Foods Connection will be one of the service organizations recognized as an “Everyday Hero.” During the day at the celebration, we will staff a booth to promote our work and we will include a homemade video with those from the other service organizations being shown inside the library-museum.
The evening event begins at 7:30 p.m. and will be hosted by Bruce Aune, news anchor at KCRG-TV Channel 9. The program features a performance by the Celebration Iowa Singers and Jazz band, patriotic music and the fireworks display. Admission is free.
