Granite Shoals has a fun day planned on Saturday, Dec. 2. First, fill up at Pancakes with the People from 9-11 a.m. at the Fire Station, 8410 RR 1431. Then, feast your eyes on the Ground Zero car and truck show, which benefits the Granite Shoals Police Officers Association’s annual Operation Fill the Boat toy drive. It revs up at 9 a.m. at Quarry Park, 2221 N. Phillips Ranch Road. 

The Ground Zero Car and Truck Club is expected to bring in over 120 tricked-out trucks for the fourth annual event. Participants will either drop off a toy or donate $35 to Operation Fill the Boat, which brings Christmas cheer to local children in need.

Admission is free for spectators, but toy and money donations are appreciated. Bring new, unwrapped toys if you wish to donate. On-site vendors will have food and merchandise for sale. Visitors can bring their own coolers for a $20 fee. The show should run until about 5 p.m.

“It’s the biggest (truck show) in the Hill Country,” said Granite Shoals Police Chief John Ortis during the City Council’s Nov. 28 meeting.

Residents can connect with the council during the first-ever Pancakes with the People. Enjoy a free breakfast and chat with city officials in a relaxed setting, ask questions, and voice concerns without the constraints of an official public meeting. Then, head over to Quarry Park with your toy drive donation.
