"Hi Everyone, I wanted to let everyone know that the Memorial Day Parade route is the same as last year. See the photo below. 
As you can see, the parade does not go along Union St. 
Also, the town common side of Church Square is closed to spectators. This is to allow vehicles carrying veterans and the fire trucks access for drop off and fire truck parking. 
You can view the parade from the church side of Church Square. 
Areas are also roped off on the common and we ask spectators to honor these and not try to cross the ropes. 
Lastly, any chairs on the common are for parade participants and not spectators. 
Thank you.
John Hefele"

And from Franklin Police:


This Monday around 10:30 am there will be several roads closed in the downtown area for the annual Memorial Day Parade. You can expect closures of Depot Street, Main Street, West Central Street, Union Street, Beaver Street, and Church Square. We’ll see you there!
