Photo walk set for Saturday
Cleburne shutterbugs are invited to participate in a worldwide photo walk from 7-11 a.m. Saturday.
Cleburne Camera Club President Peggy Cathey will lead the walk, which begins at Market Square at 300 S. Main and ends at Lemon Sisters Café and Bakery at 205 S. Main.
The path will wind through and near downtown and include well-known sites such as the county courthouse, the Layland Museum, the Liberty Hotel and Plaza Theatre. Many of the buildings will be open so photographers can capture interior shots.
Terry’s Texas Rangers will present a living history demonstration, and Billy Cate will appear in traditional cowboy attire, both in Wright Plaza.
Organizers would like to take a group shot before the walk begins, so photographers should try to arrive before 7 a.m.
The walk is free, but participants must sign up at worldwidephotowalk.com/cleburne-tx-usa and provide their own camera equipment. More information is available at that site, or participants may e-mail Cathey at email@example.com.
