The Franklin Chamber of Commerce announces plans are underway for this year’s Annual Christmas Parade which will officially ring in the holiday season. The celebration will be held Sunday, November 28, beginning at 3:00 pm. This year’s theme is “A Season for Giving”.
We are excited to announce this year’s parade will be held with a number of safety precautions in place due to the continuation of Covid-19. We will continue the extended route onto Highlands Road so that spectators can self-distance. No walkers will be allowed and no items may be handed out including candy, coupons, etc. “These precautions are in place for the safety of our community” said Franklin Chamber’s Executive Director Linda Harbuck.
Entries will line up along Church Street behind the Courthouse. The route will begin by pulling out on the top of Town Hill beside Town Hall. The route will proceed down Main Street turning left at the Lazy Hiker Brewing Company onto Porter Street. Then turn left onto Palmer Street. The route will turn onto Highlands Road extending the route to enable social distancing. The route will end at the Franklin Flea Market.
As noted above, due to safety concerns, candy will NOT be passed out this year. In addition, all horses must wear a manure bag/horse diaper.
Entry forms can be picked up and returned at the Chamber office located at 98 Hyatt Road. Deadline for entry is Wednesday, November 24 by 5 pm. Please note the Chamber will be closed for Thanksgiving Thursday and Friday, November 25 & 26.
