Autumn in the mountains of Western North Carolina is unsurpassed and when you combine a fall weekend in the mountains with Franklin's PUMPKINFEST StreetFestival you get pure familiy fun. Children and adults alike will have a blast taking part in traditional and some very non-traditional fall festivities during Western North Carolina's premiere fall festival. » SEE VIDEO
On Friday afternoon, the fun begins along Franklin's Highlands Road as old fashioned Hayrides get PumpkinFest off to a great start. Soon after that, Highlands Road merchants will share goodies with Trick or Treaters. And this is just the beginning of the fun weekend.
You'll need your rest as Saturday's events bring new challenges and fun for everyone. Historic Downtown Franklin is full tilt with everything pumpkin on Saturday. Bring your pumpkin (or purchase one downtown) and sign up early for the World Famous Pumpkin Roll. The Costume Parade and Contest is another highlight of the day, but don't miss out on the great food, mountain arts & crafts, and entertainment including roving street performers.
