North Texans brave the cold weather to celebrate Texas Independence Day

The colder than normal March weather didn't deter some folks from celebrating Texas Independence Day on Saturday.

Despite the cold, the show went on at a festival in Carrollton.

It wasn’t the weather organizers hoped for, but a lot of people weren’t too surprised by the cold weather.

They said you never really know what you're going to get in March.

The city has been putting on this Texas Independence Day Festival for a few years now.

There's lot of free, family-friendly things to do, including getting on a longhorn and riding a mechanic bull.

There is also lots of cold beer, which people are not shying away from despite the cold temperatures.

Usually, people are dealing with temperatures in the 50s or 60s this time of the year, not the low 40s.

It's just proof you've got to be ready for everything this time of the year.

“I think we're doing the best we can,” said Megan Gordon, with the city of Carrollton. “The event itself is moving really smoothly. The people that are here are enjoying themselves. We're happy it's not storming, so we'll take that.”

The event will be going on until 9 p.m. Saturday.
