The city of Franklin’s weeklong Fourth of July Libertyfest celebration kicks into high gear this weekend.
Following Children’s Penny Carnival Day on Friday, comedian Earl David Reed will perform Friday night at 7:30 PM at the Barrow-Civic Theatre.
Saturday’s events will include sidewalk sales, food and entertainment in the city’s parks, the annual Libertyfest 500 Outhouse Races, and at 6:00 PM the ever-popular Libertyfest Parade.
On Sunday evening, the regional band Lawyers, Guns and Money will make a rare reunion appearance at the bandstand in South Park.
Franklin’s holiday activities will continue daily through the climactic Thunder Over Franklin fireworks at dusk on the Fourth.
