The 2016 Party on the Peak celebration was another huge success for Preserve Granbury! This annual event took place on the privately-owned Comanche Peak…a 1,229 foot historic mesa overlooking Hood County on Saturday, October 1st just before sundown. Events included self-guided tours, panoramic views of the Brazos River Valley, cocktails, Hors d’oeuvres, dinner, and dancing under the Texas stars.
Authentic chuckwagon fare was provided by the incomparable Chuckwagon Chef Homer Robertson. This year’s menu included Pork and Beef Tenderloin cooked over the campfire, Camp Beans, Hominy Casserole with Green Chiles, Salad, Homemade Dutch Oven Biscuits, and Campfire Bread Pudding.
Live entertainment was provided by Championship Fiddler Ridge Roberts (a fan favorite!) and a concert performed by the Tejas Brothers. With their mix of Texas Swing, Tejano, and good ol’ country, the crowd was on its feet all night.
The cowboys and cowgirls wore their western attire with pride, with everything from Native American to pioneer to cowpoke ensembles. For pictures of the event, please visit our photo album here. Photography was provided by Shad Ramsey Photography.
Funds raised during this event are used for various Preserve Granbury projects, including the current restoration of the Preserve Granbury House on Lipan Highway.
