Granger plans Dino-Mite Fourth of July

GRANGER - Hisey Park in Granger, where sightings of dinosaurs are a regular occurrence, will again be the site of that community's All-American Dino-Mite 4th of July celebration.

Billed as a great family event where parents and children can enjoy an afternoon of fun and entertainment, there will be plenty for all to do.

For early risers, the Monday, July 4, community-wide celebration offers the popular hole-n-one golf shootout, starting at 9 a.m. Golfers vie for prizes by attempting to hit a golf ball into one of the floating rings in the community pond. The first contestant to score a hole-n-one, which consists of the smallest floating ring, will win the $500 grand prize.

According to golf shootout organizer Jodie Luke, there will be numerous prizes available for the taking this year. All proceeds from the shootout (three chances for $1) are used to pay for the professional fireworks display that will get underway at 10 p.m. on Independence Day.

For those who bring an appetite, Hisey Park again offers a concession stand, serving its regular menu items, plus strawberry shortcake this year.

Other activities visitors to the park will find this Fourth of July include paddle boat rides, surrey and Dino-bike rentals, fishing opportunities, as well as a place for families to light off their own personal fireworks.
