A GRANBURY SALUTE - MEMORIAL WEEKEND
May 26, 2018 - May 28, 2018
Spend Memorial Weekend in Granbury for a patriotic weekend to remember. The weekend honors those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country, and also kicks off the summer season in Granbury.
The patriotic festival, taking place May 26-28 on the Historic Granbury Square, will feature family activities, arts and craft booths, food vendors, patriotic live music, vintage military vehicles, hot dog eating contest, a pie baking contest, activities for the entire family, and so much more.
Make your way to Granbury to see "2018 A Field of Flags: Remembrance and Honor," a field with thousands of tall American flags waving proudly on Highway 377. The Greater Granbury Chapter of MOAA and its partners: American Legion Post 491, Blue Star Mothers, Marine Corps League and the Granbury Brigade put on the Field of Flags each year. Each flag is dedicated to a hero or group who have given the ultimate sacrifice.
In keeping with the importance of the holiday, a traditional Memorial Day ceremony will take place to remember the heroes lost and honor those still with us. While in town, visitors can also stop by the Granbury Memorial Lane Project located just off the Historic Granbury Square.
