Organizers of Franklin’s Pumpkinfest continue to raise the bar for autumn celebrations in the region, as Saturday’s event obviously demonstrated. Community residents and visitors could not have asked for better weather for the 15th annual Pumpkinfest, and there was certainly no shortage of entertainment for people who attended. Some people, locals and visitors alike, were taken aback by the large audience that assembled in the historic downtown Franklin area last Saturday afternoon.
Franklin’s Main Street Program coordinated the event, and hosted 61 vendors, the most ever. “I think it was the best we have ever done,” said Franklin Main Street Director Linda Schlott.
