Franklin Day Festival Draws Estimated 20,000 People For Food, Music, Games And Vendors

Some of the estimated 20,000 people who attended the fourth annual Franklin Day Festival on Sept. 23.


An estimated 20,000 people made their way to Colonial Park Sept. 23 for the fourth annual Franklin Day Festival in Colonial Park.

Festival-goers were treated to a variety of events, from musical acts, to cultural performances, games, activities, a classic car show and, of course, food.

There were also dozens of vendors, from crafters to Realtors to gyms and everything in-between.

Politicians were also on hand, as were several special-interest groups.

The township also had a tent, under which were representatives from major departments.

“It was amazing,” said Township Councilwoman Roz Sherman (D-Ward 2), the event’s creator and head of the organizing committee.

“The number is 20,000, I can’t believe it,” she said. “We had a car counter, so we’ll know definitely, but we had to open up another (parking) lot.”

“You could see by the crowds that this is so much bigger than even last year was,” Sherman said. “We had a warm day but a great day. The festival just looks better, feels better and it is better, and every year it gets better.”

Sherman said more businesses are approaching the organizing committee to sponsor the event.

“Now we have a reputation,” she said.
