Aspen Grove Dental Invites Your Family to Enjoy the Sounds of Summer in Middle Tennessee
dropcap class="dropcap"]Hurray! It’s the summer season and, if you’re like us, you’re ready to kick back and relax while the kids expend some of their boundless energy running around outside. Fortunately, we live in the lap of Music City, here, in Franklin, TN. That means there’s an abundance of great, (mostly) free music to be had within a short drive. Here’s a partial list of local venues to try out when the sun’s going down and you’re ready for a pleasant night in front of the bandshell. Whatever sounds of summer you choose to tune into, we wish you a long, lazy summer season filled with family and fun.[/dropcap]
Friends of Warner Parks Full Moon Pickin’ Parties

These laid-back, family-friendly fundraisers feature Middle Tennessee’s finest bluegrass music under the light of a full moon. Musicians and music lovers alike are invited to enjoy this beloved Nashville tradition in one of its most beautiful settings: Warner Parks. Bluegrass and roots pickers jam in circles under the trees and around the grounds, while three headlining acts perform on the main stage. There is an admissions fee but, all funds raised go directly toward protecting the Warner Parks and funding special programs for park-goers of all ages!
