What to know for those participating in the Memorial Day Parade

It's that time of year again to plan the annual Franklin Memorial Day Parade. 

The following information below will help you to inform your group, friends, families and visitors as to how to prepare for the parade. Many items will change this year, including our starting and drop off locations so please take note.

Participant Drop Off

  • Drop off will be done on Dean Avenue.

If your group is participating in this years parade please drop them off on Dean Avenue. DO NOT HAVE ANYONE IN YOUR GROUP STOP ON MAIN STREET FOR DROP OFF. This is very dangerous and the last few years we have had some close calls with children almost getting hit. This includes scouting troops and bands.

Parade Route:

The 2017 Parade route will begin at the Depot Street and Dean Bank and proceed up Main St (towards Church St.), take a left onto School, to a Right on W Central Street, then a Right on Beaver St until we reach the Town Common / Church Square. 

The parade will once again stop at the Dean Memorial, Union St and St Mary's Cemetery's. Please see the attached update Parade Route Sheet.
