Lake Granbury anniversary celebration postponed

Lake Granbury Construction

Unfortunately, but likely not surprising to anyone, the 50th Anniversary of Lake Granbury & DeCordova Bend Dam plus the 5th annual Water Safety Awareness Day originally scheduled for May 2 has been postponed.

Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommendations to maintain at least six feet distance from other people and only go out when necessary, the event will be held at another date.

While we don’t know when the event will be rescheduled due to the uncertainty surrounding the pandemic, as soon as we do, we will let everyone know.

In the meantime, if you hadn’t planned to participate in the event’s poster contest, perhaps now is your time to shine.

The Brazos River Authority is encouraging local artists of all ages to illustrate their views of the lake and the dam with a theme of “50 years in Hood County.”

Local artists of all ages are encouraged to enter their artwork, in any medium that won’t smear, using a poster of no more than 18 x 24 inches.

Entry categories are by age:

  • Kindergarten – Grades 5,
  • Grades 6 – 8
  • Grades 9 – 12
  • Adult

Posters will be judged by a committee of local representatives with trophy prizes awarded at the event at the lake. Winners will also be offered the opportunity to tour the DeCordova Bend Dam. Entry forms and contest rules may also be obtained by emailing information@brazos.org.

The previous deadline for the contest is extended until a final date for the event has been set.
