It's Officially Fair Season!

It is now officially Fair Season in Washington Parish after the Fair flag was raised during the traditional ceremony last Friday morning in front of the courthouse in Franklinton. Washington Street was blocked off and a festive crowd gathered for the ceremony, enduring unusually hot weather to watch as the flag was raised by the JROTC cadets of Franklinton High School. The FHS Marching Band performed, along with cheerleaders and dance teams from both Franklinton High School and Bowling Green School. Additional Flag ceremony photos will appear in The Era-Leader's 2019 Fair Edition next week. (in photo above, local veterans stand at the ceremony last Friday.)
