Williamson Medical Center hosting FREE FAMILY EVENT with costumed heroes & princesses, food trucks and more

By: Johnny Bradigan

FRANKLIN, Tenn.—One of the most fun family events this fall will be on the Williamson Medical Center campus in Franklin on Friday, October 27. The first-ever “Hero Hangout” will bring kids up-close-and-personal with some of their favorite hero and princess characters, like Iron Man and Elsa!

WEATHER ANNOUNCEMENT: The “Hero Hangout” will go on, rain or shine! We want you to know that all festivities, including the food trucks, will be running if it does start to rain. We have backup procedures in place.



It’s FREE to attend, and runs from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. The “Hero Hangout” festivities will all happen at the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital Vanderbilt at Williamson Medical Center. It kicks off a great fall weekend in Middle Tennessee, with the City of Franklin’s Pumpkinfest happening the next day.


While mingling with the costumed characters, children will also be able to get balloons to take home, and have their faces painted. A DJ will also be on hand, playing music.


Williamson Medical Center will have dinner covered, too. The famous Grilled Cheeserie food truck is scheduled to join, selling their beloved dishes. We’ll also have Moe Better BBQ and Fish, which serves up slow-cooked meats. After getting your fill there, feel free to buy some dessert from the Bradley’s Creamery truck!


Characters scheduled to attend:

  • Ariel
  • Belle
  • Elsa
  • Iron Man
  • Rapunzel
  • Snow White
  • Spider Man
  • Wonder Woman

*Characters subject to change


While it’s not required, children and families are encouraged to join their favorite heroes and princesses by coming in costume!
