Downtown Franklin Elf Parade (Thursday, December 3rd)
  • We will all gather at the Franklin Train Depot around 5:30 pm to anxiously await the arrival of Santa at 6 pm.
  • We will then parade down to Barrett’s Landing with Santa , Mrs. Claus and all the little elves to light the Community Christmas tree and enjoy these other specials:
    • Santa will be aboard his new one-horse-open sleigh so that people can take pictures and the wonderful children can whisper what they would like Santa to bring them for Christmas.
    • There will be a live interactive nativity scene orchestrated by one of our local church group volunteers.
    • There will be hot chocolate and cookies for the children also to enjoy.
