Looking for something to do in Franklin on the Fourth of July, or even July 5th! This is another event in Franklin that my family doesn't miss. The activities are centered around the Historic Franklin Square and filled with boutiques, vendors, arts and crafts, rides and games, music, and children's activitiies.
The event starts at 11:00am on Friday July 4th and ends around 9:15pm - just before the city's fireworks show. The fireworks show starts at 9:30pm and will be located behind Franklin High School as it was last year. The exact location is the Franklin Wastewater Plant on Claude Yates Drive. IF you want to get a good view, you might want to check out the stretch of Franklin Road right before it hits Mack Hatcher, but get there early as the crowd gets big!
If your kids are feeling patriotic, be sure to get them involved in the Patriotic Parade that starts on Friday July 4th at 4:30pm near the Franklin Theater. This has alsways been a joy to watch and this year we might even participate with our two year old girl!
