The City of Franklin celebrated its 4th annual Winni River Days celebration from June 17 through June 19. Winni River Days is a weekend-long event that brings the community together with food, live music, vendors, and kayak races. The celebration kicked off with an opening ribbon-cutting ceremony for Mill City Park’s first water feature and an outdoor amphitheater – a moment six years in the making. The water feature is a stationary wave allowing kayakers to practice their skills in one spot while the amphitheater provides a space for spectators. Several partners of Franklin’s revitalization effort spoke at the event including representatives from the City, Mill City Park, Franklin Savings Bank, and Lakes Region Conservation Trust’s Don Berry who offered his congratulations and said he looks forward to enjoying it in the years ahead.
