GRANGER--A big birthday calls for a big parade!

The city of Granger turns 100 this year.  Plans for this year's Cherry Blossom Festival are bigger than ever and this parade kicks it off.

Mayor Ramona Fonseca tells KNDO a strong community's been the key to lasting this long.

"The people, the pioneers that came and went through a lot of struggles and made us what we are today," Fonseca said.  "We are the product of a strong, strong community."

She added that the town's children are the key to Granger's future.

Fonseca said Granger will hold a carnival and other events to celebrate their centennial throughout the summer.
