This month The Franklin Band will host three Saturday March-a-Thons in Fieldstone Farms, Founders Pointe and Chestnut Bend
Each March-a-Thon will begin at 10:30 a.m. The band will parade and perform highlights from their current show, Cut From Carbon, as well as other popular pep tunes and military service songs. In addition to playing along the parade route, the band will perform a Macy’s Parade-style show with formations at multiple sites in each neighborhood, allowing space for plenty of viewers while social distancing.
