Escape to the Arts! with Franklin's ArtWALK Celebration - Jun 11-12-13

"Just want to make sure all of our community knows there is a NEW and giant event going on in Franklin this weekend. This has been organized by the FRANKLIN CULTURAL DISTRICT and has taken dozens of volunteers, thousands of dollars (hard-won grant money) and hours and hours (and hours) of planning. They now need YOUR support by attending! 
There are so many events taking place with this all over town - Friday, Saturday and Sunday. 
For the complete schedule, look here: https://buff.ly/3xTXRes
