Graford’s July in the Park celebration

Music from Swing Country, with Brady Bowen, filled the air Monday at the annual Fourth of July in the Park celebration in downtown Graford, after an invocation and the Pledge of Allegiance was led by Trinity and Ella Leach of Graford.

Friends and neighbors gathered to share the latest news and as in years past, free hot dogs, ice cream, cake, cookies and cold drinks were served to all. Children of all ages were treated to hay rides. Each child was given an individual packet with a variety of fireworks (with a verbal request to be used under adult supervision) courtesy of Graford’s own Toby & Sherry’s Fireworks to enjoy the Independence Day celebration.

Robert Ray, the evening’s organizer, said he thought there was a great turnout for this year’s event.
