This year’s Fourth of July celebration – known for years as “Franklin on the Fourth”– will focus on family fun … but won’t be skimping on great music, quality crafts, tasty food, antique cars, and kids’ activities!
Note: Franklin on the Fourth ends at 8 p.m. to give attendees time to get to the fireworks at the Park at Harlinsdale Farm. The big light display, put on by the City of Franklin, will begin around 9 p.m.
The free festival kicks off at 10 a.m. this Friday, with bluegrass music leading the way. Featured food vendors downtown will include everything from roasted corn on the cob and BBQ to ice cream, nachos, corn dogs and smoothies. Craft vendors will fill the area with wood working, jewelry and other handmade items!
Other fun things happening: Antique cars will line Main Street between 4th and 2nd Avenues; there will be a kids’ zone on 3rd Avenue North with inflatables, a petting zoo, and pony rides; and the always fun Children’s Parade begins at 5 p.m.
And don’t forget about the all-day live entertainment, including popular groups Jack Daniels Silver Cornet Band and Live at Ventura Blvd.
“Franklin on the Fourth” is coordinated by the Franklin Lions Club and TN Events in conjunction with the City of Franklin. Presenting sponsors Kroger and Williamson Medical Center will also have booths right on the Square. All proceeds benefit the Franklin Lions Club.
