Honor our Veterans – They honored U.S.
Wednesday, September 30, 2009 • Posted September 30, 2009

Greetings American Patriots,

The City of Granite Shoals, will once again host the highly acclaimed, Annual Veterans Parade and Celebration, and you are invited to participate in the November 7, 2009, event. We will again be honored by the participation of the 1st Cavalry Horse detachment from Ft.Hood.

This will be the 4th annual event and we are reaching out beyond Burnet County to the Texas Hill Country to include; Blanco, Burnet, Lampasas, Llano, Mason and San Saba Counties.

Our goal is to make this the largest celebration of our Veterans in Central Texas, ever.

This is a wonderful opportunity for your community to honor your Veterans and show your gratitude to all those who have so bravely served this great nation.

We encourage you to bring your area Veterans on floats, as well as your marching bands, your school children, your scouts, your “kings and queens”, horse drawn carriages, your mounted posses, all non-profit organizations, your city and county officials, and all other patriots who wish to participate. There is no fee but registration is required.

The minimum requirement for floats and vehicles, carriages and horses, is that they be decorated in red, white and blue and every individual carry a U.S flag. (Preferably American made)

This year we will be judging the floats for the most unique in each category. Judging will be at Veterans Park following the parade. The Program and Benefit BBQ will make it a truly patriotic day.

Down load a Parade Application and Waiver on

The theme for this year’s event is; “Honor our Veterans – They Honored U.S.” and may be displayed on floats and vehicles at will.

Parade starts at 11:00 a.m. Line-up starts at 10:00 a.m.
