Click to see Carry in Holly on August 29,
The Carry Nation Festival is held annually in honor of the great prohibitionist’s visit to Holly, when it was a booming railroad town riddled with taverns and ladies of ill repute. Carry was known for busting up bars, and closing down sinful drinking and gambling establishments, and Holly was a perfect choice. Our festival commemorates her feisty visit to Holly.byfakerolex.com
