The city of Grayson wrapped up their 51st annual Memory Days celebration on Sunday, with bluegrass music, a softball tournament, and the Kiwanis Jeep Show after a long weekend of events. Despite inclement weather rescheduling events on Thursday, and scattered showers on Friday, the sun shone on most of the weekend, including the Saturday events like the Mental Health Matter 5K, Dog Jog, and parade.
