Summary - Events and Meetings

Garden Tour

As you drive or walk through Graymoor-Devondale, it’s easy to see our residents take great pride in designing and maintaining their beautiful homes and yards. It was this wonderful sense of pride and awareness that lead several residents to approach the City Council about sponsoring a Garden Tour. These residents felt that many residents would like to participate in our Garden Tour by opening up their back yards for other residents to visit. Although the Garden Tour has not become an annual event yet, both Garden Tours were wonderful opportunities for neighbors to meet and share information and tips about their back yard’s beauty.

If you would like to be a part of the team that plans and organizes our next Garden Tour or, if you would like for your yard to be on the Garden tour please send your contact information to cityclerk@graymoor-devondale.com or call 429-0834.

Yard Sale
As a service to our residents, Graymoor-Devondale sponsors our annual City-Wide Yard Sale in June. Several days before the date of the Yard Sale, a member of the City Council will post Yard Sale signs on major intersections around the city. These signs are owned by the City and residents should not move or re-locate these signs. The City will also contact local newspapers and internet sites announcing the date and time of our Yard Sale. Residents that post their own yard sale signs are expected to remove their signs on the same day of the yard sale.

4th of July Patriotic Parade
Graymoor-Devondale has a long history of celebrating the 4th of July. First with a Children’s Bike Parade and more recently, our 4th of July Patriotic Parade. After many years without parades, the 4th of July Patriotic Parade is now an annual City sponsored event.

The Graymoor-Devondale 4th of July Patriotic Parade is usually scheduled for the morning of the 4th of July. To spark the spirit of participation and to encourage residents to be a part of the parade, wearing their red, white, and blue, the City awards prizes for several categories that often includes the following:

Most Patriotic Kid
Most Patriotic Safety Helmet
Most Patriotic Grown-Up Kid 
Most Patriotic Pet
Most Patriotic Wagon
Most Patriotic Float

The City encourages residents to be a part of the parade by walking the parade route or setting up their lawn chairs and cheering on the participants. This event is a great way to meet your neighbors and celebrate the 4th of July.

For the safety of those walking the parade route, drivers should be prepared for traffic delays as several streets are closed during the parade.

Check this site’s calendar and the May-June newsletters for the date, time and route of the 4th of July Patriotic Parade. Prize winners photos are shared with residents in our July newsletter.

In the event there is inclement weather on the morning of the parade, please look for an update on this site.

Holiday Decorating Contest
Residents of Graymoor-Devondale have for many years demonstrated their creative skills with bright elaborate Holiday decorations. As a way of thanking our residents for the time and money they put into their decorations, the City sponsors an Annual Holiday Decorating Contest. Cash prizes are given to the winners of the following categories:

Best Use of Holiday Lighting
Best Holiday Door
Most Traditional Lighting
Most Festive

Usually, on the evening of the second Saturday in December, judges drive through Graymoor-Devondale comparing the many decorated homes before selecting a winner in each category. Make plans to be a part of this City sponsored event.

Check this site’s calendar and the October-November newsletters for the date and time judges will be touring the City and selecting there winners.
