If your neighborhood’s not the best for trick or treating (whether that’s because of a lack of streetlights and sidewalks, houses too far apart, or just full of people who give out bad candy), you have a couple of other options in Franklin this year!
On Thursday, October 27, from 4 to 6 PM, you can check out the Franklin Public Library‘s free Halloween Party, with crafts, prizes, games, and pizza. If you come in costume, you can join the parade and get the chance to win an award from the local celebrity judges! Scariest, cutest, and funniest costumes are just some of the categories with a chance to win. The Library is still in its temporary home at 25 Kenwood Circle in Franklin, so don’t get lost.
If you can’t make it to the library party, stop by the Franklin Police Department’s Halloween Party on Sunday, October 30. From 3 to 7 PM, the Police Department will become the “Hall of Justice,” complete with superheroes and villains, and there will be face painting, a bouncy house, and a “spooky trail,” among other entertainments! This event is also free, but donations to the Franklin Food Pantry will be gratefully accepted. The police station is located at 911 Panther Way in Franklin.
