HOLLEY – The fifth annul Murray-Holley June Fest is in full swing today.

The events began with a 5-kilometer race this morning. Community-wide garage sales are also today. After a parade through the Public Square, the festival action shifted to the canal park.

The festival for the first time includes wine-tasting from noon to 5 p.m. at the park.  Tickets are $7.

Organizers have a “Holleywood Idol” talent show planned for 5 p.m. at the Woodlands Soccer Field. A free Drum Corps Show is set for 7 p.m. at Woodlands and will feature the Drum Corps from the parade, plus the Hitmen Drum Corps, the Kendall-Holley Marching Band and Color Guard, and the Holley High School chorus.

Shuttle buses will run all day from the high school and elementary school parking lot and the Holley firemen’s field. Fireworks will be at dusk from the soccer field.
