The fireworks show was a blast, the parade was patriotic and the kids enjoyed every minute. The big kids, too.

Following a myriad of activities over the weekend, the Granbury Chamber of Commerce activities continue today with live music on the square starting at 4 p.m.

A new feature for the Fourth of July begins at 9:30 tonight. A patriotic laser light show will be on the side of the courthouse building as the festivities conclude.


RED, WHITE AND BLUE BABY: Fifteen-month-old Tabitha Koppang watched her siblings participate in the Old-Fashioned Games Sunday afternoon in Shanley Park. The toddler was quite content just to sit in the shade and wave her American flag.


THE BAND PLAYED ON: The Granbury High School marching band and flag corps were decked out in red and blue tie-dyed T-shirts for the Hometown Parade Saturday morning as part of the Fourth of July festivities over the weekend.


COWBOY WORK: The annual Ranch Rodeo drew a number of cowboys Sunday night at Reunion Grounds. Hood County Livestock Raisers Association sponsors the rodeo to raise money for six college scholarships.


SPECTACULAR: As viewed from City Beach, the fireworks show was another great one. Gold bursts shooting through larger gold bursts were a crowd favorite about two-thirds of the way through the show.


CATCH A COOL BREEZE: The folks at Daffan Mechanical provided a popular attraction at the Hometown Parade Saturday morning. The gigantic air conditioning unit traveled the parade route looking like an octopus with A/C ducts extending toward the crowd. Spectators appreciated a blast of cool air as the float passed by.
