The Franklin Noon Rotary Rodeo Parade presented by Goodall Homes heads off to Main Street at high noon on Saturday, May 14. Cowboys, cowgirls and little tuckers are invited to head ‘em up and move on downtown to be a part of or watch the fun-filled parade.
“This is the annual kick off to Rodeo week,” said Tom Smith, parade organizer.
Community and civic organizations, churches and individuals are invited to create a float and join local VIPs, high school and middle school bands and a mounted horse group who have all already signed up to be in the parade, Smith said.
“It’s free to enter,” he added.
Entrants should arrive at the staging area in Jim Warren Park by 11 a.m. to ensure a good spot in the line up.
The parade will head east on Highway 96 onto Bridge Street then head north on Third Avenue to Public Square and onto Main Street, turn onto 11th Avenue and return to the park.
Depending on the number of entries, the parade should last about 30-minutes.
“Goodall Homes is thrilled to sponsor the Franklin Rodeo Parade,” said Rachael Overall, Goodall Homes Director of Marketing. “We believe it is important to support the communities in which our employees, business partners and homeowners live and work. Partnering with the Franklin Noon Rotary to sponsor the Rodeo Parade allows us to give back to one of the greatest small towns in America. As a Williamson County resident, I have attended the rodeo & parade for several years with my family and we look forward to it every year.”
