"I grew up being a part of everything in Granite City," she added. "My dad was a big part of that when I was a kid. We are hoping this brings out more family-friendly opportunities. We had a Mardi Gras event last February and we hope to do that again. We have the Candy Cane Parade in December and then the Mardi Gras event in February."
