Eat the Street, Franklin’s food truck-themed fundraiser, returns for its sixth run on May 5. Since 2012, area food trucks have gathered to serve hundreds of enthusiastic diners, and to support the 21st District Recovery Court.

The annual event takes place Friday, May 5 from 5 – 10 p.m. at Franklin Bicentennial Park, located at Hillsboro Rd. and 3rd Ave. North. In addition to 44 food vendors lining the streets, there will be entertainment provided by local student bands, followed by the main attraction – TRUE AIM – a local band led by Franklin attorney Alison Prestwood. Attendees are encouraged to bring folding chairs or blankets for picnic style dining and to find a spot near the stage.

As always, admission is free, though donations are appreciated and will be accepted at welcome tables located at 3rd Ave. North at Hillsboro Rd. and at 3rd Ave. North at Margin.
