Summer Music Festival moved to October

The Summer Music Festival Preview, originally slated to take the place of the cancelled F.A.M.E. festival on June 2nd and 3rd, has been postponed until October. Barry Cassidy had this to say

"I was unable to put it all together in total," said Cassidy. "The music and staging aspect wasn't difficult. I tried to put it together on the fly, but it was an uphill battle to get enough people to man the food and drink portions of the Festival.

"When you are having an event serving alcohol in a public setting, you need trained and responsible people and licensed food handlers to serve it. I was unable to put that part of the program together. We couldn't coordinate it in enough time to have it be as successful the way we want it."

The actual date has yet to be announced and no word on if this will have any effect on the Summer Music Series which last year was held every Friday evening during the summer.

Some other intersting notes came from the same article in the Phoenix. Specifically, Carlos Ciruelos, president of the Phoenixville Jaycees who were put in charge of the F.A.M.E. festival, sounds optimistic that it will return next year, only with a different name. It will now be called the 460 Festival in honor of Phoenixville (460 being the last three digits of our zip code) and will have a much more Phoenixville focuses theme. Not sure what that means but I'd like to wish my best to the organizers.
