Organizers of WNC OutdoorAthlon will host a two-day festival on Oct. 8-9 in Franklin, featuring a wide variety of events and activities that will have something in store for everyone. Organizers hope the event will allow visitors, residents, and business owners to interact collectively in showing their appreciation for the area’s unique landscape. The event venue is located at Cullasaja Park just off the Greenway on the Highlands Road.
“We just wanted to put together an event for the community,” said organizer Rob Gasbarro. “This area has something that no other place has. Not New York, Orlando, or any other area. We feel like this will be a great opportunity to show people what Macon County really has to offer,” he said.
