FrankTown Festival of Lights

The coronavirus pandemic may have placed a number of restrictions on planned activities this year, but the lights are shining once again for Franktown Open Hearts.

That would be those illuminating at the Williamson County Ag/Expo Center where Franktown is holding its third annual Festival of Lights. For $25 a carload, friends and families can drive through a display of lights stretching for more than a mile set to classic holiday music.

It’s an ideal social distancing holiday activity benefiting Franktown Open Hearts, a local nonprofit that works with inner-city youth. Franktown is involved in the lives of over 150 young men and woman from Franklin's at-risk neighborhoods. Whether playing a game of basketball, providing a home-cooked meal, or helping with homework, it is making a difference in young peoples' lives.

The Festival of Lights is open every night from 5-9, rain or shine, through Dec. 26. Click here to purchase tickets online. The Ag Center is located at exit 61 off Interstate 65 in Franklin.
