Lighting of the Franklin Theater Marquee

Real Estate Agent with Benchmark Realty

Franklin is all abuzz with the new marquee for the Franklin Theater.  Tomorrow is the lighting of the marquee.  It is Neon lights and as much like the old one as they could get.  They interviewed long time residents and hunted down some photos to make it as much like the original as possible. 

So the party is on in Downtown Franklin TN tomorrow, Saturday, January 29th to light the Marquee.  There will be stores with Champagne, "Cigarette Girls" handing out goodies.  My daughter will be one of them.  It is very fun to see the next generation get involved in fun events with the town.  Lots of restaurants offering "Happy Hour" type specialties to bring in the huge crowds.  The weather should be nice - what a reprieve that will be.  We are looking forward to seeing friends and neighbors and celebrating the fun that is Franklin!

Come on down if you can.  Party starts at 4pm and the lighting is at 5.
