Halstead is proud of its city parks, one of which has a “Hollywood” connection. The famous 1955 MGM movie, “Picnic,” starring Kim Novak, William Holden and Cliff Robertson, was filmed primarily in Halstead’s Riverside Park, located at the river confluence that marks the city’s earliest beginnings.

The Old Settlers Picnic, held in Riverside Park is the oldest continuous celebration in Harvey County and has been held every August, rain or shine since 1887.
