The Harvest Moon Festival began more than ten years ago to encourage downtown shopping and support for local merchants. It was scheduled during the month of October to celebrate the beginning of the harvest season which leads up to the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. It recognizes the spirit of a cane farming culture, which has reaped the rewards of productive farmland and abundant natural resources. The festival features live music, children’s activities, a classic car show, vendors and special retail promotions. It is sponsored by the Franklin Merchants Association.
