Pumpkinfest, cemetery tours and 'Trunk or Treat'
Things are starting to look pretty scary around town and we've got the scoop on how you can have a haunting good time.
Pick your own Pumpkins
One of the most popular road trips this time of year is to Gentry Farms, 1974 New Highway 96 W., in Franklin. This historic working farm has been owned by the same family for over 150 years. The farm is now open Saturdays (9 a.m. to 5 p.m.), Sundays (1-5 p.m.) and Monday mornings (9 a.m. to noon). Admission is $6 per person, ages 2-65. The farm has a corn maze, hayrides, natural trail, farm animals and more in addition to pumpkins. Click here for details.
The Franklin Theatre has gotten into the spirit by scheduling a months-worth of horror films and not-so-scary but still spooky flicks during the month. Monster House, The Cabin in the Woods, Corpse Bride, Psycho and Zombieland are among the offerings. Click here for details.
