According to the Spring Ho Festival website back in 1972, a naming contest was held in which an anonymous person paid a $25 donation and suggested the name "Spring, Ho!". It's meaning is said to imply a direction much like "Westward, Ho!". The festival takes place during the second week of July each year which is clearly more a part of the summer season than spring, but the name stuck anyway.
