There’s still time to join the lighted Christmas parade
The Christmas Story in Song is the theme for the Night of Lights Christmas Parade.
The Historic Granbury Merchants Association is taking parade applications through Nov. 22. Application forms are available at the Hood County News, 1501 S. Morgan St.; Granbury Visitors Center, 201 E. Pearl St.; HGMA office at Granbury Square Plaza, 201 E. Pearl St. and online at www.granburysquare.com.
Community businesses join area churches for the lighted parade with a Christian theme at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 29.
The 28th annual parade on the day after Thanksgiving includes floats, walking units, horses, choirs and more. Parade entries must have at least 30 percent coverage with festive lights.
Parade entries gather at 5 p.m. at the former school parking lot at Hannaford and Rucker streets, in front of Decker Gym. From there the parade heads east on Pearl Street and circles the square.
