Grayson summer events planned

GRAYSON -- The city of Grayson is planning several nights of movies and concerts to help its residents fight the summertime blues.

Arts and History Center Director Barbara Hinkle said it begins with a movie at 8:45 p.m. June 8 in the city park: "How to Train Your Dragon." All residents are invited to attend the free event, which is hosted by Anchor Church.

On the last Saturday of every summer month the city hosts a bluegrass concert from 6 to 9 p.m. in the park pavilion featuring musical artists from all over the state.

Hinkle said the free event affords residents the opportunity to "socialize and get together. We have lots of fun sitting outdoors and enjoying the park. It's a 10-acre park, which is so nice, with plenty of room for people to spread out. You can bring a little picnic dinner and bring your dogs. Everybody just has a lot of fun."

At the history center, the annual Christmas in July open house is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on July 28.

"We decorate our history center to give people a taste of what's going to be coming in December," Hinkle said. The history center is located at 2070 Rosebud Road, Grayson.
