The inaugural "Taking it to the Streets" event is happening from 10 a.m.to 4 p.m. on Aug. 24 on the Simpson County Courthouse Lawn in downtown Franklin.

"We are a group of small business owners and upcoming business owners who are bringing our products to the streets for the community to know what is available," said LaToya Bowers, with the Kiwanis Club of Franklin.

The event is to showcase local products and local businesses all in one place. Bowers said the vendors are show expected to show up around 8 a.m. to start setting up, giving them two hours to prepare.

There will be games and activities for kids like inflatables, Kiwanis Cones for Kids, a jumbo-jenga and kick darts.

"While the moms and dads are walking around looking at products the kids are playing and I am going to have attendants at each game station," Bowers said.

Approximately 40 vendors have already signed up, many non-profits.

Bowers said they are not looking for any more vendors since they already have so many at this time.

Food vendors like Black Sheep Street Eats are also going to be available.

"Just come out and enjoy what is available in your community and let the kids have fun," Bowers said.

The event is sponsored by Harvesters Warehouse Pentecostal Church. For more information visit their Facebook page, Taking it to the Streets 2019 Franklin.
