COME TO FRANKLIN FOR "PUMPKINFEST":
Featuring the World Famous Pumpkin Roll!
OCTOBER 25 & 26, 2013
Spend a Fall weekend in Franklin and take in all the family fun of PumpkinFest! During this event you can take part in some traditional and some very non-traditional fall festivities.
On Friday afternoon, the fun begins along Franklin's Highlands Road as old fashioned Hayrides get PUMPKINFEST off to a great start in The Shops at Riverwalk. Soon after that, the Highlands Road merchants will share goodies with Trick or Treaters. And this is just the beginning of the fun weekend.
Go home, or if you're visiting, check into a local inn, motel, or bed and breakfast, because you'll need your rest. Saturday brings new challenges and fun for everyone.
Main Street, Phillips Street, and Palmer Street will be awash with everything pumpkin on Saturday. Bring your pumpkin (or purchase one downtown) and sign up early for the world famous PUMPKINFEST Pumpkin Roll. The Costume Parade and Contest will surely be the highlight of the day, but don't miss out on the Pumpkin Walk, great crafts and art, fabulous food, and music, music, music.
Again this year, PUMPKINFEST will hold a Pumpkin Cooking Contest and you’re invited to enter your favorite pumpkin creation. The contest is sponsored by the Macon County Historical Society.
