    Ben Franklin, dutifully played by Ralph Archbold helped kick off another season at Franklin Square Thursday with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the park’s new pavilion.

    The event space is available for weddings, picnics and other affairs, and joins the carousel, mini-golf course and Squareburger as one of many tourist attractions in the bustling park.
