For the past 8 years my family has spent Thanksgiving in Glen Rose. That new tradition conflicted with an old tradition- the Fort Worth Lights Parade. We have found a new, fabulous alternative.
The Granbury Lights Parade is the perfect small town parade. It is just 20 minutes or so from where we stay and the shops are all open!! They pass out candles and sing Christmas carols over a PA system and the entire crowd sings along! It is awesome! Another cool thing is that the parade is sponsored by a local association of churches, so the float themes are all about Baby Jesus! At the end of the parade, they count down and light up the courthouse!
