A variety of events await visitors to the fourth annual Franklin Day Festival, set for noon to 5 p.m. Sept. 23.

Last ear’s event, held in Colonial Park, drew more than 10,000 visitors, and organizers say they expect more this year.

The day’s agenda includes live music, artists, food and other vendors, cultural performances and games and activities for children.

Games and activities planned include face painting, paddle boats, bubble soccer, miniature golf, an aerialist, and pony rides.

The day will also feature a classic car show. Those interested in showing off their classic car can contact Bob LaCorte at (732) 991-1710.

The township’ successful farmers’ market program, begun this year and usually held at the corner of Amwell Road and DeMott Lane, will also wind up at the festival.

Also new this year will be a Franklin art exhibit showcasing art in various media  – photographs, paintings, drawings, quilting, woodworking, etc. – that relates to the township. The display will include work done by township students.

As usual, any township homeowner who may have inadvertently completed work on their home that needed a permit but failed to get one will be offered amnesty at Franklin Day. Those affected must stop at the township Construction Department’s table to register.

The festival will be held on the lawn near Colonial Park’s parking lot C.
