The 14th Annual Pumpkinfest is being held today in downtown Franklin, NC. Main Street will be closed from 6am to 6pm and the traffic detour route is posted above.
I'll be there, taking photos and video of the event, and you can find out more about the festival at Renewing Franklin.
Main Street, Phillips Street, and Palmer Street will be awash with everything pumpkin on Saturday. Bring your pumpkin (or purchase one downtown) and sign up early for the world famous PUMPKINFEST Pumpkin Roll. The Costume Parade and Contest will surely be the highlight of the day, but don't miss out on the Pumpkin Walk, great crafts and art, fabulous food, and music, music, music.
Again this year, PUMPKINFEST will hold a Pumpkin Cooking Contest and you’re invited to enter your favorite pumpkin creation. The contest is sponsored by the Macon County Historical Society.
If you are too far away to attend the festival this year, you can peak in on some of the events as seen from the WPFJ webcam. It is currently pointed at the Main Street and Iotla Street intersection. They may also be doing a live broadcast from the festival. You can tune in at 1480 kHz on the AM band.
If I upolad any pics or tweet from the festival today, I'll use the #MaconNC hashtag. The twubs widget is below:
