The Texas Independence Day Celebration of North Texas at Granbury, created by the Texas Heroes Foundation, celebrates the rich heritage of the great State of Texas. Our goal is to preserve that history for our children and grandchildren. March 2 is the perfect time to share our message with all of North Texas through education, and a celebration of the history that made Texas great.
Join us February 28 – March 2, 2015, and help North Texas celebrate Texas Independence Day.
