Yesterday, November 29th, the Franklin Chamber of Commerce hosted their annual Christmas Parade in Franklin. The route, as in recent years, ran from town hall, down Main Street, turned left on Porter Street, then left again on East Palmer Street (Back Street to us locals) and along that street until it became East Main Street and turning right to disperse on the Highlands Road.

Alice Bradley, aka Ab, and the bus drivers for the Macon County School System were the Grand Marshals of the parade.

Video and photos are posted below. The Franklin Christmas Parade is usually the Sunday after Thanksgiving.
