Last year, Franklin had a record tall tree for Light-Up Night. It towered. It was over 50 feet high and it really created quite the Hallmark scene as one rounded to corner off 13th Street heading down through town on Liberty Street. But soggy ground and high winds didn't allow it to stay standing long. A few tears where shed by those closest to the tree-getting experience. But they wiped them off, grabbed each others arms and headed right back to work. They wore their hearts that don't like to disappoint on their sleeves, found a quick replacement and within a day were back in business with a much smaller tree. One that could finish off the holiday season with style.
Decorating chairperson Pat Dolecki said the tree will be adorned with 1,440 colorful lights and 550 twinkle lights.
Light-Up Night also features tons of stuff to do in and around town all day long. To see all that is going on in order to make plans visit http://www.8and322.com/eight--322/making-sure-light-up-night-is-bright.
