Exciting new additions this year include historic railroad handcars, a wine tasting from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Blazing Saddles star Burton Gilliam signing autographs from 1:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m.

Of course there will be live music and vendors all around the Bonham Square. Make plans now to attend Heritage Day Celebration in historic downtown Bonham May 3.
