FRANKLIN, Tenn. (WTVF) — From cowboys to clowns, the Franklin Noon Rotary Club’s Franklin Rodeo is celebrating a milestone 70th year.
The Franklin Rodeo is Williamson County’s longest-running event, and Executive Director Bill Fitzgerald has been going to the Franklin Rodeo since he was six.
“It’s about God, country, family, and community. That’s the four things we build the rodeo around,” said Fitzgerald.
While the three nights of the rodeo are a lot of fun, it’s also a sanctioned event on the professional rodeo circuit. It’s also a massive fundraiser.
