The 11th annual Frolic On Franklin was held downtown Saturday, September 24. A variety of artists were working in their booths with some of their original artwork for sale. There were several crafts on display, such as jewelry, pottery, woodwork, photography and ceramics.
Festival goers had the opportunity to learn techniques from the artists like painting demonstrations, wood turning, jewelry making and portrait drawings.
There were over 30 local and regional artists lined up along the 100 block of historic Franklin Street. Some of the shops along Franklin set up booths outside their door front and had their products for sale.
In addition to artist booths, live entertainment filled the streets throughout the day with Kenwood High School Golden Knights Drill Team, Cumb34land Winds Jazz Project, 101st Airborne Division Band, The Redwood Climbers, Fusion Ballroom Dancing and more.
