Memorial Weekend 2019

 May 25-27







While this is the weekend that generally kicks off the summer season with family get-togethers, cookouts, and three-day getaways, let’s not forget the true reason why the holiday exists.

Granbury, Texas is celebrating with a big 3 day patriotic festival around the downtown historic square with family activities, market booths,  live music, hot dog eating contest, a special children’s play area and much more.

There are other wonderful patriotic events around town including a Ceremony on Monday Memorial Day hosted by the City of Granbury-Your Local Government. A Field of Flags: Remembrance and Honor and Granbury Memorial Lane

The patriotic festival, taking place May 25-27 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.

Sunday night after dark, enjoy the Lighted Boat Parade.  The Parade begins at Stumpys Marina and travels to the Pearl Street bridge (near Mesquite Grill) and returns. A great spot to watch is the City Beach or anywhere along the shoreline.

Make your way to Granbury to see 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, there will be two traditional Memorial Day Ceremonies on May 27.
