'Hood Magazine is Sioux Empire's Parenting Resource and YOUR local resource magazine filled with practical ideas, information and stories that advocate stronger families through togetherness. 'Hood also includes a pregnancy and baby section to help you prepare for this amazing journey into parenthood. Be sure to check out our website for even more resources on your journey. We are here to support you every step of the way!


One of 'Hood's priorities is to sponsor and participate in community events. This is why we are excited to be the new parent company of FamilyFest!

The Holtrop Family has always been a part of FamilyFest since the very first event in 2010. It was the same day we launched the first issue of ‘Hood Magazine. It has been great to be at the event each year and watch it grow and change. When we were approached last year to purchase the event we couldn’t pass it up. We knew it would be perfect fit to go along with ‘Hood Magazine. We are excited to bring an all new FamilyFest on July 8, 2017. While we will be working hard the day of the event you will also see us with our son Jaxson and our daughter Khloe making sure they are enjoying the day too. If you know our family we have a “third child” Moltey our puppy. You won’t see him at the event this year but he has been there in past years. We believe that spending time together as a family is really important and we are excited to have an event where families can spend time together and find resources they need throughout the year. 

FamilyFest is designed to enrich the lives of each and
every member of the family... no matter the age!


​Our daylong, outdoor summer event provides current and future parents an opportunity to discover resources that will strengthen, enlighten, encourage, teach and entertain themselves and their children ranging in age from babies and toddlers to high school age students and beyond. We are dedicated to providing area consumers with one-stop access to the most respected local, state and national companies and organizations that specialize in growth and development assistance, products and services. We are dedicated to the success and celebration of the family with this active and enthusiastic event in an environment that is fun and entertaining for the whole family. 
In addition, proceeds from the Kid's Fun Run will support Children's Miracle Network. Funds raised through Children's Miracle Network enhance programs & services and are used to purchase the most advanced life-saving medical equipment needed to care for children. Simply put, funds raised through these programs help change and save the lives of children! Be sure to "Like" the FamilyFest Facebook page to stay up to date about the Kids Fun Run, prize giveaways and how you can help us raise money for this great cause.
