Open every night of the week, rain or shine! Explore more than a mile of beautiful holiday lights set to classic Christmas music, all from the safety of your car. This year features new and improved light displays!

Franktown’s Festival of Lights is located at Exit 61 in Franklin at The Williamson County Ag/Expo Center.

Cost is $25 per car or “pay-what-you-can” option.


Get your jingle on at the MOST FUN & FESTIVE holiday fun-run around – all to battle the #1 cause of disability!
Though the Arthritis Foundation’s 2020 Jingle Bell Run is going virtual, don’t let that stop you from jingling. Join the original festive race for charity from anywhere! Whether you want to run your favorite 5K route, challenge yourself to something new or get moving on your treadmill, you can strut your stuff and FEEL GOOD about DOING GOOD. Every runner will receive an exclusive Jingle Bell Run short sleeve t-shirt, unique medal, and sticker for your water bottle or laptop!

It is more important now than ever to Jingle with us and support the Arthritis Foundation programs and services going strong. Thanks to generous supporters, we’re helping 75% more people than before the pandemic get the help they urgently need. Together, we’re investing in virtual and vital resources and programs for the millions of adults and children challenged by arthritis — to help them navigate these difficult times and access necessary care.

We just CAN’T STOP JINGLING — so let’s jingle all the way to a cure together and have a great time along the way! Get your jingle on and spread the Spirit of Yes: Yes to celebrating the arthritis community. Yes to living life to the fullest. And Yes to conquering arthritis for good.
