Downtown Franklin TN has a number of wonderful events during the year. One of them happens in December. It is called Dickens of a Christmas. It happens on Main Street. There are many wonderful folks dressed up like characters from Dickens famous Christmas Story about Ebeneezer Scrooge. Come and see Marley and Tiny Tim walking the streets of Franklin. There are carriage rides and some wonderful winter vendors. There aren’t a lot of vendors for this festival. And it was interesting for us one year. We spent most of the weekend downtown. We went on Saturday and had fun. We realized all the cars that park on Main Street normally were gone, so we could get some wonderful photos of downtown Franklin without the cars. So, Sunday morning, we went downtown and had a wonderful time collecting photos of our lovely town. And while we were there, it began to snow, really snow. It was FABULOUS! The people who came downtown for the festival mostly ended up enjoying the snow from inside the many wonderful dining establishments, and watched the rest of us walk in the snow and enjoy the treat from heaven. It was a delightful Dickens of a Christmas!
The dates for the Dickens of a Christmas are December 8th and 9th, 2012. Click here for more information.
