Behind the Scenes
Spring Ho is organized by an all volunteer committee that works throughout the year to provide a great family style festival. Lampasas Spring Ho Festival, Inc. is a not-for-profit corporation that “gives back to its community” through scholarships, park improvements and in many other various ways. Local business sponsors, volunteers, ex-Committee members and individual donations have continued to make Spring Ho a well known festival not only for Lampasas, but also for surrounding communities as well. Members of the Spring Ho Committee agree to serve a three year term. A new member quickly finds out that running Spring Ho is a complex task in which the first year is a total learning experience. The Committee meets once each month year around, with other meetings held on an as needed basis. A month prior to Spring Ho the Committee meets once each week and the actual week of Spring Ho is more than a full time job starting at sun up and going well into the night time hours.
Since 1972 hundreds upon hundreds of Lampasas area residents have volunteered to be a member of the Spring Ho Committee, putting in countless hours of hard work, and insuring that Spring Ho usually goes off without a hitch! When you see a green shirt in the crowd at Spring Ho, you know a current committee member is on the job!
