It's Fall Y'all!
October in the Franklin/Nashville area ushers in a welcome break from the sometimes oppressive heat of the summer. If you’re like us, you’re ready to get outside and celebrate this great autumn weather and there are plenty of events to keep you entertained the entire month of October. Take a look. Get out there and enjoy the cooler weather.
Visit a Pumpkin Patch!
As we roll into the Fall there are many pumpkin patches to choose from. Two of our favorites are Walden Pumpkin Farm in Smyrna and Gentry's Farm in right here in Franklin. Both fun and photogenic!
