Here are 5 things you should know about the Franklin Balloon Festival.
1) What is the Franklin Balloon Festival?
While there are lots of things to do at the Ballon Festival, the most popular moment of the night is the illumination of 5 hot air balloons at dusk. While rides will not be offered, guests will enjoy up-close views of the giant balloons.
See how pretty!
2) Where is it?
The Franklin Ballon Festival will be held in the Westhaven Community in Franklin. Westhaven is located off New Hwy 96 in Franklin, about 3.5 miles west of downtown Franklin

5) The “Amenities”
It wouldn’t be a festival without live music. You and your family will be able to enjoy local live music as well as food trucks, craft vendors and for all you beer lovers out there – a beer tent! Plus, there’s a “KidZone” to keep the young ones entertained all night with face-painters, balloon artists (of course!) and more.
This pretty much sums up how we feel about the Franklin Balloon Festival.
There’s really no other way to spend a summer evening than in a picturesque location like Westhaven enjoying what is a really unique and beautiful experience.
