Anytime the roads are blocked off in downtown Franklin for a festival, it's probably worth going.
This time, the festival was "A Dickens Christmas," and downtown was bustling with characters from "A Christmas Carol," kettle corn, and dancing.
There were bonnets.
And hoop skirts.
There was the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come*.
And the Ghost of Christmas Present.
And, of course, there was the Ghost of Jacob Marley*.
There was Tiny Tim.
And there was a Mom and Son enjoying each others' company. :)
And finally, there was my kindergarten teacher (who looks the same as she did almost 20 years ago!)
And since you're probably wondering, there was newly brown hair (that looks so red in these photos, but it's really not).
Finally, my favorite, there were doggies that joined in the fun!
*Thanks to Brian Porick for the corrections. It's obvious I need to see "A Christmas Carol" again! :)
