Scott Burgess Memorial Freedom Festival

May 18, 2019 Downtown, Franklin, Texas

It’s a race, literally, to bring together a festival in such a short amount of time. Organizers have been hurting about to assigned tasks for three weeks and the Scott Burgess Memorial Freedom Festival is starting to take shape.

It is going to be a bit of the old with a lot of the new so the newspaper has been told. Seems many years ago Franklin had a downtown spring type festival and street dance. Keeping with a bit of that tradition Freedom Festival is going to have a full day and a full schedule for families to enjoy and you are invited to save the date.

Scheduled for Armed Forces Day, May 18 with the entire event kicking off with the Scott Burgess Memorial 5k Run which will loop the city streets with the start and finish on festival grounds.
