Free Christmas Events
Our family at The Academy wishes you and your family good cheer, good health, and good will toward men! We also hope that you and your family will take advantage of some of the free Christmas activities that are available in Nashville and the surrounding areas.
For example, at The Factory in Franklin, you can wander through a wonderland of decorated 9′ Frasier fir Christmas trees. You can vote for your favorite and automatically enter a drawing to win a holiday-themed prize. This even runs throughout the month of December.
