The Franklin Area Lions Club Renaissance Faire returned to West Franklin this weekend. Visitors encountered stiltwalkers, vendors, period demonstrations, a chance to eat turkey legs, and music and entertainment, including events inside the combat arena. The fair, now in its second year, raises money for the club and continues on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Elks Field on South Main Street in West Franklin. Admission is $10 for adults and $8 for seniors and children ages 6 to 12 (no cost to children under 5 years of age). Free parking and a shuttle bus are available from the Watts Webster Valve facility just south of Elks Field.
