City of Franklin officials bring to our attention the fact that their more than week-long Fourth of July Libertyfest event starts this Wednesday (6/25) with the opening night of the 2014 Taste Of Talent competition.
Other activities are scheduled daily through July 4, culminating in the annual fireworks display at dusk on the Fourth. The biggest event is traditionally the Libertyfest Parade, scheduled for this Saturday, June 28 at 6:00 PM.
The Taste of Talent event, an annual vocal competition which will involve twelve singers this year, will actually continue on a weekly basis through another city event, Taste of Franklin, held during the first weekend in August. Until the semifinals, scheduled for that August weekend, the event will be held each Wednesday evening at 7:00 PM at the bandstand in Franklin’s South Park. All twelve entrants will perform this Wednesday evening and next Wednesday, and beginning next week, one singer will be eliminated each week during July, cutting the field to the eight “semifinalists” who will continue to compete during Taste of Franklin.
