A Granbury Salute - Memorial Weekend
Spend Memorial Weekend in Granbury for a patriotic weekend to remember. The weekend honors those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country and also kicks off the summer season in Granbury.
The patriotic festival, taking place May 24-27 on the Historic Granbury Square, will feature family activities, arts, and craft booths, food vendors, patriotic live music, vintage military vehicles, hot dog eating contest, a pie baking contest, activities for the entire family, and so much more.
Make your way to Granbury to see a field with thousands of tall American flags waving proudly on Highway 377. The Greater Granbury Chapter of MOAA and its partners: American Legion Post 491, Blue Star Mothers, Marine Corps League and the Granbury Brigade put on the Field of Flags each year. Each flag is dedicated to a hero or group who have given the ultimate sacrifice.
In keeping with the importance of the holiday, a traditional Memorial Day ceremony will take place to remember the heroes lost and honor those still with us. While in town, visitors can also stop by the Granbury Memorial Lane located just off the Historic Granbury Square.
Sunday night of Memorial Weekend, see the Lighted Boat Parade on Lake Granbury. Dozens of boats travel from bridge to bridge for this beautiful spectacle. The parade travels towards the Pearl Street bridge (near Mesquite Pit) and then back. Join the festivity with a lighted and decorated watercraft! This is an after-dark event and everyone with a decorated, lit boat is invited. No entry fee.
Also taking place over Memorial Day Weekend in Granbury is CATSFEST 6. This festival is so much more than just a Craft Beer Experience and Cigar Festival, it is a great community coming together to support our Deployed Men and Women in the Armed Services, and to have a PHENOMENAL good time, while doing it. Three ways to describe the festival: Patriotic, Good Adult Family Time, Competitions. Learn more and purchase tickets at catsfestival.com.
