4th of July Festivities

2019 LibertyFest Parade Day Invitation

Help us Celebrate on Saturday, June 29

THE 'HAPPY DAYS' OF THE 1950s

The City of Franklin would like to invite your organization to join in our LibertyFest Parade, held during our annual 4th of July Festivities Week, and sponsored by Joy Global Foundation/Komatsu Mining Corp. We encourage your group to embrace the 50s so bring out your “poodle skirts,” “hula hoops,” “Elvis persona,” “classic cars,” make a float, decorate a vehicle, walk, dance, march, or ride as we entertain our community!

For this year’s Parade Marshal, we will honor the late Penny Minnick, a life-long resident whose love of animals and “all things Franklin” inspired so many. Penny, who passed away last year during our 4th of July festivities, will be represented by her loving husband, Cliff.
