Light Up the Night in Appleton!

There is always something going on in Appleton.  Happily, the Franklin Street Inn Bed and Breakfast nestles close to downtown and in the heart of the Fox Cities.  Our location provides easy access to what's happening, and gives our guests a comfortable place to stay when they're here for events! New events bring many visitors, and add to the community and culture of Appleton and the Fox Cities.

Light The Night Market, Friday, May 19, 5:30-9:30 pm is prominantly displayed under pictures of a guitarist labeled music; women at a craft table labeled vendors;, and an orange and gold dragon labeled arts and culture. Event sponsor names with the logos line the bottom of the graphic.
