Franklin Band to Host Fall Community Events

Both events will be held in the Howard Gamble Stadium at Franklin High.

Fall brings more than just pumpkin spice, it also brings the opportunity to enjoy cool nights, trick-or-treating and great music from the seven-time state marching band champion The Franklin Band. Join them as they host two events to share their appreciation for the community.

First up is the third annual Musical Trick or Treat on Tuesday, October 25 from 7 to 8 p.m The band provides live music for this frightfully fun trick-or-treat walk. The band’s director, Dr. Michael Holland shared, “This has quickly become a tradition that our band members look forward to. They’ve prepared some wonderful musical snacks to go along with the candy.”

At 7:30 p.m. Thursday, October 27, the Franklin Band will perform its 2022 show, “Forever Young,” for the community. “The students started practicing this show in July and they have really brought the vision to life,” said Dr. Holland. “We were honored and humbled to have won Grand Champion at the Stones River Competition with it last month. We want to share it with this community who has shown us so much support as we head into our final competition of the season.”

“The community performance is also where we potentially kick someone’s holiday season off right with the chance to win up to $20,000 in the raffle,” says Band Booster Board President Bryan DeCuir. The prizes increase based on the number of tickets sold. Tickets can be purchased for $25 each or 5 for $100 at thefranklinband.org.

Both events will be held in the Howard Gamble Stadium at Franklin High (810 Hillsboro Road). Parking is free.
