Don’t miss the Franklin illumination ceremony Saturday at Carnton

The highlight of Blue Gray Days in Franklin every year is the touching illumination ceremony at dusk.  Plan on attending this year’s ceremony on Saturday the 20th. The weather is suppose to be nice. Here are some pictures from last year’s event.

The color guard and band will enter the cemetery at 4pm.  There will also be a period band and living history representations of Carrie McGavock and Col. W.D. Gale.

If you’re interested in volunteering to help light the candles – a real honor –  contact Amanda Hall (amanda.hall@franklintn.gov).
