Enjoy seasonal activities this weekend


Enjoy seasonal activities this weekend

The recent ice storm brought activities to a screeching halt over the past week. Businesses were closed, people were unable to leave their homes and Christmas shopping was put on hold.

Scott Young, of the Historic Granbury Merchants Association, called the icy event “devastating for the small businesses on the square, as well as all the businesses in Hood County.”

Merchants are hoping that cabin fever and normal weather conditions will bring people out of their homes this weekend.

“This weekend has a plethora of Christmas activities unparalleled in any other North Texas town – Candlelight Tour, Living Christmas Cards, Nativities at Langdon, concerts and “A Christmas Carol” at the Opera House,” Young said in an email.


Postponed last weekend due to icy weather, Granbury – A Candlelight Tour will take place this weekend with a few changes. Tours will be conducted only Saturday and Sunday.

Historic sites on the tour include homes, businesses, museums and other buildings. Certain locations may have limited hours due to previous commitments of the homeowners.

Tickets are $25 and can be purchased at the Nutt House on the square or online at www.granburycandlelighttour.com. Tickets are good Saturday and Sunday. The tour is sponsored annually by the Historic Merchants Association.

The Granbury Living Christmas Cards event sponsored by Lakeside Baptist Church began Friday and continues tonight on the square. The event will be from 6 to 9 p.m.

Life-size “Christmas cards” will be on the parking lot of the courthouse, with live actors and singers making it appear as if the Christmas cards have come to life.
