GALLERY: Katy Rice Fest honors local traditions

Posted

Katy honored a decades-old tradition over the weekend with the Katy Rice Festival. The annual event celebrates the town’s history as a rice-growing community and allowed the city to put its new Katy Downtown Plaza to use for the first time since it was landscaped earlier this year. The plaza hosted a stage for musical performances as well as serving as a respite from the Texas heat on a shaded, grassy lawn. Proceeds from the event go to the Rotary Club of Katy which uses the money for a variety of charitable work in the Katy area such as scholarships for Katy ISD students and other programs.
