The annual community day in the Delaware County town of Franklin has been revamped this year as the bigger, better "New Old Franklin Day," happening on Saturday, Aug. 29.

Businesses like the Tulip and Rose Café and Franklin's new Gone Local Marketplace will be open alongside a pie sale at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, a book sale at the Franklin Free Library, a mini-version of the Franklin Farmers' Market, a performance of "An Enemy of the People" at the Franklin Stage Company and a block party and dance starting at 6 p.m.

The Franklin Railroad and Community Museum will be open, the rotary will be serving hot dogs and burgers and local homes will open their doors to the public for touring. (Part of the event's revamp is that town-wide lawn sales are now happening all day as well.) 

The Greater Franklin Chamber of Commerce notes on its website that it "has spared no expense at arranging a full moon for any evening festivities."

New Old Franklin Day. Saturday, Aug. 29, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Various locations around Franklin.
