The 2013 Taste of Scotland and Celtic Festival was a huge success with an estimated 3,000-4,000 visitors engaged in a full day of activities. The success of this years returning festival is due in no small part to the community merchants, volunteers, entertainers, vendors, service organizations, church groups, and many unsung heroes who gave their time and energy to support the festival in innumerable ways. We thank the Town of Franklin for their immeasurable help through the TDA program, the Main Street Program, bill boards, use of the Town Hall council chambers, and the help of Linda Schlott, and Summer Woodard. We thank the chamber of commerce for their assistance through the TDC program, and the assistance of Linda Harbuck. We thank the directors of the Scottish Tartans Museum for their assistance and support with a special thank you to staff member Ronin McGregor. Our wonderful website was created and maintained by Jim Geary. A special thanks is due Bonnie Pickartz and her family.
