The Town of Franklin's Tourism Development Authority held their monthly meeting on Monday night to consider a funding for the 2014 PumpkinFest and another request to help out on advertising for the Scottish Tartans Museum.
At last month's meeting, the Franklin Main Street Program submitted a request of $1,500 to help with funding for radio and print advertising. Bo Bryant, who is the chairman of the program, made the request for the festival that is scheduled for Oct. 24 and Oct. 25.
On Monday with no discussion, TDA members voted unanimously to grant the full request. PumpkinFest is one of Franklin's most popular uptown events and includes a pie eating contest, costume contest, a parade, entertainment, games for kids, live music, craft and food vendors and the very popular pumpkin roll.
