It’s Franklin Folk Festival time again, and a host of volunteers, both new and old, are going to be present on July 16 from 9 to 4 helping make this year’s “Tales, Trails and Settlements” theme come to life.

The festival will take place along the streets in historic downtown Franklin, the Fellowship Hall of the First Baptist Church and at the Macon County Community Facilities Buildingon 441S.

As usual there will be a lot going on around the Town Hall, including old-fashioned hominy making by Fred Bulgin.


It is the beginning of harvest time and that means that the corn will be coming in. The smell of fresh corn was in the air Saturday afternoon, July 9, for Franklin’s annual Sweet Corn Festival. The festival was held at St. Cyprian’s Episcopal Church.

There were sights and activities of all kinds. On one side there was face painting and various activities for the kids. Along the other side there were vendors and displays, including Barbara White with a display of local churches and a demonstration of leather artwork by Ron Sullivan and Ken Smith.
