2018 Strawberry Stroll

The 16th annual Strawberry Stroll was the best one ever! Thousands of people flooded Main Street in downtown Franklin to visit 100 vendors, and enjoy musical entertainment, activities, and of course, strawberry shortcake!

Thank you to the co-chairs of the Strawberry Stroll Committee Beth Wierling and Jen Hurst, as well as the many volunteers who donated their time and energy to make the event successful!

Many thanks to the Franklin DPW for their help in setting up this event and the Franklin Police Department for directing traffic and keeping everyone safe!

Also, thanks to the wonderful musicians who kept adults and children entertained throughout the evening!

There will be handicap parking available at the Dean Bank parking lot during the Strawberry Stroll on Friday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

This will give seniors and others with mobility issues only a short walk to the strawberry shortcake tent in front of Dean Bank. We will have plenty of chairs and tables as well.
Also, there will be room for senior buses to drop off seniors in the Dean Bank parking lot off Dean Avenue. Please keep in mind that Main Street will be closed so buses will need to enter off Dean Avenue.
