Venture Local Franklin is promoting another event to assist businesses in the Downtown area this Friday night with a Halloween-themed block party that will culminate with a movie (Ghostbusters) being shown in the Town Hall parking lot (bring a blanket or lawn chair to sit in the grass and watch it) after it gets dark.
Even though this grassroots group of local business owners and entrepreneurs have faced growing opposition from some people in the town bureaucracy, it is continuing to grow and get better each time.
From the event page on Facebook:
WE'RE HAVING A MONSTER MASH BLOCK PARTY!
AND.... A COSTUME CRAWLl!
What's a Costume Crawl? You can go in each store to register to win a prize. There will be a WINNER at each participating merchant! So..you could win more than once! All ages are invited to enter and costumes are optional (but encouraged).
So come on out and make use of that costume you want to wear. Show off your creative side! Just come to have fun!
