If you enjoy golf, Brady has a fine, 9-hole municipal golf course, just west of town. For shooting sports, there’s the Kenneth Madlock Gun Range at Brady Lake. (Incidentally, that’s the site of the Texas Muzzle Loaders Championship Shoot, where 150 enthusiasts from all around Texas compete for the state crown in June.)

The McCulloch County July Jubilee includes a parade from Richards Park to the Courthouse Square, a street dance, free watermelon feast, a concert by the Heart o’ Texas Jubilee Band at Brady Lake pavilion and a gigantic fireworks display at Brady Lake.

Then there’s Richards Park, a city-owned facility featuring 150 primitive camp sites plus 45 full hook-ups for RVs. It has numerous baseball fields, a soccer field and a playground available. That’s where Brady holds its annual World Championship Goat Cook-off each Labor Day weekend. This spectacular event includes Arts & Crafts exhibits, kids games, horseshoe and washer pitching, and many other activities. It attracts more than 125 cooking teams from across North America.

Hunting is a big deal in McCulloch County; there are seasonal opportunities for hunting whitetail deer, Rio Grande turkey, doves, quail as well as year-round hunting for feral hogs and various exotics. Call the Chamber of Commerce at 325-597-3491 to confirm dates and details or visit this website: www.bradytx.com.

Whatever your interests, there will be plenty of good reasons to visit Brady. And if you enjoy exploring Texas, you’ve got to visit this little town that so embodies the Heart of Texas.
