For the past few years on social media folks have been asking that more entertainment be added to the units in Franklin’s Independence Day parade.
This year’s parade appeared to be getting a huge boost. I’ve been informed by a Franklin Civic Celebration source that the University of Wisconsin marching band had agreed to participate, but has now pulled out.
Apparently the band was committed to march in Greenfield’s parade and was concerned about a time conflict.
Franklin’s parade is supposed to start at 11:00 (but seldom does). Greenfield’s parade is slated to begin at 12:15.
So no UW Band in our parade. That’s unfortunate.
However the band will play at Franklin’s Civic Celebration on July 4 on the main stage from 2:00-2:30.
