Gainesville residents participate in festivities to be "most patriotic"

GAINESVILLE, TEXAS -- One Texoma town could have a new claim to fame.

Gainesville is a finalist for the "most patriotic small town in America." The competition is hosted by Rand McNally and USA Today.

Tonight, residents kicked off their "pedaling for the medal" event; riding bikes to let everyone know about the contest. There will also be a parade and a free ice cream social.

City officials encourage you to come out, wear your red white and blue and share what makes Gainesville the "most patriotic small town in America."

    To be honest about 1/3 of the city have migrated from the border south of us. But hey maybe that does mean we are especially patriotic, many are willing to risk jail time to live here!
