Franklin’s annual fall festival will be capped with a fireworks show downtown this year.

Residents missed out on fireworks when rain forced the city’s annual Fourth of July event to be canceled.

The parks department has rescheduled the fireworks show for 9 p.m. Oct. 1 at the conclusion of the Franklin Fall Festival. The fireworks will be set off near the downtown area.
