The Katy Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce that Katy’s own Lynn Cardiff, former executive director of the Katy Area Chamber of Commerce, will serve as the Grand Marshal for the 31st Annual Rice Harvest Festival.
“It is an honor to recognize such an incredible woman as the Grand Marshal of the festival’s parade,” says Ann Hodge, chief executive officer and president of the Katy Area Chamber of Commerce. “As a founder of the Rice Harvest Festival, Lynn has always had a hand in the festival’s success. This is our opportunity to thank her for service throughout the years.”
The Katy Area Rice Harvest Festival was born in 1981 as Cardiff; Brad Hays, former director of the Westside Art Guild; and Sam Scardino, former president of the Greater Katy Area Chamber of Commerce sought to bring the community together to celebrate Katy’s history, offer a venue to showcase local performers and create an event through which allow local artists and farmers could sell their wares. Cardiff assumed the role of the festival coordinator and director and, under her direction, the event quickly evolved in to what is now a much anticipated tradition for the Katy community.
