It’s time to strike up the band, dress in your finest red, white, and blue, and raise your flags high for some Texas-sized fun. July 4th marks the 238th anniversary of America’s independence, and the Lone Star State is ready to commemorate the occasion in style.
Growing up in Texas and learning about how this state became a nation for a time, I always wondered why people didn't make a bigger deal out of Texas Independence Day. It seems like a great time to celebrate what's great about Texas, doesn't it?
This year is an excellent chance to do just that, since the March 2 anniversary of the adoption of a declaration of independence falls on Saturday. Celebrations in Granbury, Gruene and Washington-on-the-Brazos offer a fun way to mark this historic occasion and show your Texas pride.
