Visit Granbury – City of Granbury Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB), is challenging our community, civic organizations, charitable organizations, and brave individuals to help us kick-off the Winter-Guest Tourism Season (January - February) by jumping into the frigid waters of Lake Granbury on Saturday, January 15th at City Beach Park.  This is the second annual Lake Granbury Goosebump Jump event. The event was “put on ice” in 2021 due to pandemic concerns so we are thrilled to have it return in 2022 – Tammy Dooley, Director Visit Granbury.

The event is sponsored by the Granbury Area Lodging Association, Visit Granbury – City of Granbury, KHITS 95.5, and Hood County News. It is a friendly competition with funds raised from the $10 registration fee along with a $1,000+ prize generously provided by the lodging association to be awarded to the 501C3 organization that signs up the largest number of participants. “What a great way to kick-off any non-profit organizations’ budget than to start with an instant $1,000 plus!” said Tammy Dooley, Director, City of Granbury Convention & Visitors Bureau – Visit Granbury.

The winning charitable organization will be determined by how many jumpers register, naming their favorite charity to win the funds. Participants must register and check into the event to be counted. The 2020 event raised $2,371.96 for the winning charitable organization - Second Chance Farms. Judges will also award prizes to the winning participants for best costume, best couple costume, best group costume, furthest traveled, and the oldest competitor. 

The first 200 participants to register online or in-person at the event will receive a souvenir Lake Granbury Goosebump Jump 2022 medal.  Registration will be open online beginning December 1st. Online registration will close on Jan. 8 at 5 pm after which time you can bring your registration form and/or cash or check to Visit Granbury or sign up the day of the event.

The event schedule includes: 10 am registration and sign-in; 11 am costume judging & awards; 11:30 JUMP; 12 pm – 2 pm snow slide activity and hot tubbing by JR Spas. The event will take place at Granbury City Beach and will be complete with free hot cocoa, coffee, cookies, and more to be enjoyed in the warm comfort of the Hilton Garden Inn immediately after the jump.

Dooley added, “The Goosebump Jump is our kickoff event to our Winter-Guest Tourism Season in Granbury. This is a time when hotels, restaurants, and attractions offer special discounts and packages and increase guest benefits to incentivize visitors to come to Granbury in January and February. And the forecast? 100% chance of snow.”

The Granbury CVB works to promote and enhance the visitor experience increasing tourism economic impact. This fun event is yet another way we can enhance direct visitor spending to our city and bring the community together to enjoy the fun.  Everyone is invited to participate or come cheer on your favorite charity team.
