Summer brings Franklin County fun
Whether you’re missing spring, celebrating summer, or a little bit of both, Franklin County has plenty of fun to offer close to home this summer. Familiar favorites, our festivals are treasured traditions that help bring us together with special events to plan and look forward to enjoying together each year.
Other yearly favorites for many include attending or otherwise participating in vacation Bible schools or summer camps. Our lakes, swimming pools, splash pads and other outdoor activities are also much anticipated activities.
For others, perhaps seeking the perfect tomato sandwich or enjoying other summertime treats, including watermelon, is high on your list.
Among the activities on the agenda this summer are the Phil Campbell Hoedown, June 16-17, the July Fourth Jam on Sloss Lake in Russellville, Vina’s July Fest on July 29, and, of course, Russellville’s Watermelon Festival August 18-19 and its related activities.
The deadline for the Watermelon Pageant is June 16, and the pageant takes place July 15. Other seasonal favorites include trips to the drive-in for movies and snacks, as well as events at the Roxy.
See our community calendar in the paper each week for more information and stay tuned to The Franklin County Times for additional details about all these events and more.
If you have an upcoming event you’d like to share, let us know. While summer is still in its early days, we’re already thinking about our fall and winter festivals and other activities, and we can’t wait to see what the rest of this year brings.
So, whatever you’re looking forward to this summer, we hope you can make it a good one and find time to relax, sit back and enjoy all that Franklin County has to offer.
