August’s StreetFest makes local shopping a family affair
The newly revived and renamed non-profit organization Streets of Franklin, along with Venture Local, hosted the second downtown block party last Friday night. As locals and firsttime visitors lined the streets, Main Street businesses offered snacks, refreshments and great deals for customers.
Throughout the evening, Main Street echoed the sounds of local musicians including dulcimer players Phil Myers and John Hawk and four bands, Uncle Don's Band, The Cellar Dwellers, A36 and Galaxy News Radio, which were split between two stages. In the midst of the evening activities, Linda Cherry's flash mob hit Main Street and danced “The Wobble.”
