The annual celebration will occur around the downtown square in Franklin. The event starts at 11 a.m. and live music starts at 12 p.m. and continues until 8 p.m. The Oscar Mayer Weinermobile will arrive at 11 a.m. and will be giving away free “weenie whistles” until 3 p.m. or until supplies are exhausted.
