The Sister Cities booth at Franklin’s Annual Pumpkinfest Festival on October 26, 2020 highlights the “Great Pumpkin”, a contribution from our Sister City in Carleton Place, Ontario, Canada. Pumpkinfest was attended by more than 50,000 people and the Pumpkin’s trip from Carleton Place to Franklin has been followed by hundreds on twitter and facebook.
This event is always covered by the local news media.
There will be kids games that are favorites from each country where our Sister Cities are located: put-put into a pumpkin ( Ireland), kids street hockey into a carved pumpkin (Canada), Pumpkin Hammerschlagen with golf tees (Germany)
Prizes can be won!
