"Come Home to a Franklin County Christmas", held on December 7, 2012 was a HUGH SUCCESS! Community Partnership for Revitalization and our partner, Franklin County Commerce and Leisure Services, are most proud to have organized and managed this event. Community residents and visitors enjoyed the festival held in Downtown Rocky Mount and participated in numerous events including the "Biggest Little Parade in Rocky Mount", the musicians, dancers, local artists, an ice carving demonstration, and the Horse & Buggy rides. Special activities for children included "Jamming along the Crooked Road" & face painting. The festival ended with a special salute to all veterans for the National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. And, of course, the town was decorated with white lights providing a beautiful background to this premier Christmas season event in our community!
Look forward to all the upcoming FOOTLIGHTS OF THE BLUE RIDGE traditional music programs during the 2013 winter season. Each program begins at 7:00 PM at the Rocky Mount Community & Hospitality Center (Train Depot) in Downtown Rocky Mount.
