Balconies, Bands & Boats is weekend theme on square

Bands on the balconies are coming to the square for Granbury’s Memorial Day Celebration.

“It’s something different,” Brenda Hyde said of the bands playing on balconies. Hyde is events coordinator for the Historic Granbury Merchants Association. Josh Winters, who is chairing the Memorial Day committee, came up with the idea, according to Hyde.

In addition to vendors on the square and eating contests, the Memorial Day Celebration includes a special veterans ceremony at 9 a.m. Saturday. The program will be on the stage near First National Bank on Bridge Street.

Local boat dealers will have a display on the square during the weekend activities.
