Pumpkinfest, Williamson County’s largest fall festival, returns for the 33rd year in a row, taking place Saturday, Oct 29 in historic downtown Franklin.
With over 65,000 people in attendance, the festival stretches along Main Street in downtown Franklin, and its avenues, and offers tons of festive fun for families!
Thompson’s Station Park will be filled with blues, rock, pop and country music on Oct. 29 at the Thompson’s Station Oktoberfest 2016, a Third Coast Music Festival for a Cause.
The event, organized by guitarist-producer Rick Armentrout, raises money for the Alzheimer’s Association Mid-South Chapter and the Gauge Stevens Diabetic Dog Fund (animals trained to alert diabetics to dangerous fluctuations in their blood sugar).
The all-day event from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. features constant music as well as classic cars, exhibits and vendors, and food booths.
Participants of all ages and abilities are encouraged to come paint along with Susan Elizabeth Jones on Sun, Oct 30th from 2p-4p.
You will be painting the beautiful pumpkin picture above or you can choose a pumpkin from the pumpkin patch and paint on a pumpkin.
Cost is $5.00 per person
This free event includes a costume parade, face painting, apple bobbing, pumpkin carving and more in the afternoon and a ghost walk begins at 6:30pm at the corner of Pearl Street and Prospect. On the ghost tour, you will learn about the history of Nelda Moss, a young woman who was tried and hanged for practicing witchcraft who some say still lingers around Westhaven, where her childhood home once stood.
