Visit Granbury – City of Granbury Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB), is challenging the 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 Saturday, January 14th at City Beach Park at the third annual Lake Granbury Goosebump Jump event.

 “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.” said Tammy Dooley, Director, City of Granbury Convention & Visitors Bureau – Visit Granbury.

The event is sponsored by the Granbury Area Lodging Association, Visit Granbury – City of Granbury, KHITS 95.5, JR Spas, Texas EMS, 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 organization’s budget than to start with an instant $1,000 plus!” – Dooley added.

The winning charitable organization will be determined by how many jumpers register to name their favorite charity to win the funds. Participants must register and check into the event to be counted. The 2022 event raised $3,171.00 for the winning charitable organization – Mission Granbury (41 checked-in jumpers). Judges will also award prizes to the winning participants for best costume, best couple costume, best group costume, oldest competitor, and furthest traveled. Spectators do not have to register and are invited to come to watch the fun. Children are welcome to register and must be accompanied by an adult.
