Freedom fest locks down band line-up and events

Event organizers are now moving at a fever pace to bring the biggest festival Franklin has seen in years. Closing in on the date, May 18, volunteers have organized many different events that will last all the way to the street dance at 8:00 p.m.

Kicking off early is the Memorial 5k run, then the car show which opens at 10 a.m. a corn hole tournament, crawfish cook-off, kid zone, vendors lined up and down the downtown square, food trucks, and live music all day on the main stage.

“The council had a special meeting last week and gave the event $2,500.00,” said Bear Moore, one of the event coordinators. The council originally denied the request from the festival coordinators but with the addition of a Friday event and race packet information distribution the city was able to meet the criteria for HOT funds.
