Vendors sought for Grayson Day

GRAYSON -- The city's annual Grayson Day Festival doesn't happen for several months, but officials are accepting applications for those intrested in being vendors at one of the community's biggest events.

The 34th annual event is a celebration that includes arts and crafts vendors, a variety of food, activities for children and entertainment, said City Administrator Laura Paul-Cone.

"Every year it gets bigger and bigger, with more vendors, more activites and more visitors," Paul-Cone said, adding that an estimated 5,000 people visited the event in 2012.

Olympian Chaunte Lowe, a Grayson High School teacher, is grand marshal for the 2013 parade, which begins at 10 a.m. April 27. The event will be held at Grayson Community Park at One Park Drive in Grayson.

Paul-Cone said those interested in being a vendor at the event should visit the Festivals page of the city's website: www.cityofgrayson.org, or visit: www.cityofgrayson.org/files/33432137370.pdf.
