The City of Franklin, WAKM, and Friends of Franklin Parks are partnering to enhance the Fireworks show at the Park at Harlinsdale Farm, at 239 Franklin Road, with live music and refreshments at Tractor Supply Co. Arena in the park.
Residents are invited to come to The Park at Harlinsdale farm to park their cars and enjoy the fireworks show. Now Friends of Franklin Parks are encouraging folks to get out of their cars and enjoy the show from the prime viewing area inside the Tractor Supply arena!
Gates to the park open at 5 pm with the Music, Food and Fun starting at 6 p.m., Events and Catering by Suzette will be grilling burgers, brats and hot dogs at the concessions stand, and cold beverages and treats will be available for purchase. This year, Mantra Artisan Ales will be there pouring their locally brewed ales. Guests can grab a seat on the terraced berm or set up blankets and chairs in the arena. At 6:00 pm, live music will begin with The Frank Hurd Band and then local favorite Rubiks Groove will keep the entire family entertained until the fireworks show which begins just after 9 pm.
The Independence Day event is free and open to the public, with food and beverage available for purchase. Donations to Friends of Franklin Parks will be appreciated, and proceeds will be used to make further improvements to the Park at Harlinsdale Farm. Friends of Franklin Parks is currently raising funds to add additional amenities to the Tractor Supply Co. Arena, other structures at Harlinsdale Farm and work on connecting our parks through trails and a riverwalk.
Presenting Sponsors for the Music inside the Tractor Supply Arena are Coca Cola, and Mantra Artisan Ales.
