The 2012 Strawberry Stroll in Downtown Franklin started out a bit stormy but that didn’t dampen the enthusiasm or the appetites of anyone who braved the elements early and came out to enjoy the event.
When the storm clouds passed shortly before 5:00 p.m., DJ Domenic Cotoia of Music Odyssey Productions got the party fired up by playing “Here Comes the Sun” by The Beatles. Shortly after that the crowds arrived to celebrate the unofficial start of summer.
Hundreds of people strolled through the downtown Thursday afternoon, enjoying the Partnership’s famous strawberry shortcakes in front of Dean Bank, special promotions by participating businesses and restaurants, and music at four different locations.
