The City of Franklin has opted to push its annual Christmas Tree Lighting back two days in order to avoid inclement weather that is predicted to arrive on Friday and remain through Saturday evening.

The event will now begin on Sunday, December 2, at 4:30 p.m. and will include all previously scheduled festivities with performances starting at 5:15 p.m. and the tree lighting following at 5:45 p.m.  

“We thank our partners who help us give this special gift to our community.  It’s so nice to have families of Franklin join us to light our spectacular tree and help spread Christmas Cheer” said Mayor Ken Moore. He continued by thanking all those involved who adjusted their schedules in order to attend the event.

Off-site parking will still be available at Pinkerton Park and Bicentennial Park which are both walking distance from the downtown square.
