Ruby Drop has potential to be flagship event


Nearly 3,000 people celebrated the New Year on Main Street in Franklin for the second annual Ruby Drop hosted by Motor Company Grill.

As the crowd counted down the final seconds of 2015, The Ruby, which is more than six feet wide and more than six feet tall lit with more than 1300 LED lights, began to drop from a crane above Main Street.

While the Ruby Drop was the highlight of the evening, businesses along Main Street stayed open late to help welcome the new year to Franklin.
