Be proud at Old Fashioned 4th of July

“Proud to Be an American” is the theme for the 2016 Old Fashioned 4th of July presented by the Granbury Chamber of Commerce.

First responders will be the grand marshal for this year’s parade. Doofus, the mascot of Second Chance Farm of Granbury, has been named the honorary grand marshal.

The three-day celebration is Saturday through Monday, July 2-4.

Chamber spokeswoman Tammie Hines said the annual event “brings throngs of visitors to town.”

The celebration features more than 100 arts and crafts and food vendor booths lining the courthouse square. A classic car show, rodeo, live music, parade and fireworks show are part of the fun. The holiday weekend will also include live performances by Big City Music Revue and at the Granbury Opera House.

The chamber is accepting applications for vendors and parade entries.

All forms, schedules and information can be found on the chamber website at GranburyChamber.com.
