Fireworks

As I am sure most of you are now aware, the fireworks display scheduled for last night did indeed happen. And, like most of you, I am shocked that the decision to have them was made considering the fact it was pouring with rain most of the evening. I have no idea how many people were actually in attendance when the first firework was set off but I have to imagine it was far less than would have been in attendance had they postponed it until Saturday. There is no mention as to who made the decision or when it was made on the borough site so we are only left to speculate. My condolences to those who wished to attend but, like me and my family, did not because of the weather.

We are disappointed that the fireworks were held last night...we did not attend due to weather and thought they would be rescheduled and sorry to hear we missed them!

Wow. I assumed they'd be rescheduled. That is a disappointment.

The Phoenix said the decision was up to two councilors, one of whom was on vacation!

The paper also said the rest of the gang wanted to cancel but hadn't checked the fine print of the agreement. Once the fireworks were in the ground they couldn't reschedule.

But that tornado warning and the thunderstorm weren't exactly last-minute additions to the program...

Roll on Kimberton fireworks in three weeks.

It is an extreme disappointment to me and my family seeing that last year Kimberton Fire company announced it was the last year they would be holding the fireworks so we wont be seeing those this year. However Lionville Park has scheduled theirs for this Saturday and they have a large community day event as well.

Kimberton fireworks? I also was very disappointed about the Phx fireworks; you think a tornado watch would be plenty good reason to postpone! What a debacle! I also had heard that there would be no more Kimberton fireworks, due to the new school construction but that hasn't started yet. Does anyone have more info.?

I was disappointed as well. My kids were very excited they were going to able to see fireworks this year. I told them that the fire works would be canceled since it was raining so much. Then that night, I heard the fireworks firing off. I was stunned that they continued with the show, and felt bad for the kids.

Local Baker Wins on Netflix Sugar Rush

Peri Anderson, owner of Brooklyn Girl Bakery, was part of a team that won the most recent episode of Sugar Rush on Netflix. I reached out to Peri to learn a little more about her bakery:
I started out taking a recreational cake decorating class with my mom when I was still living in NY. I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012. I do all of my baking in our home kitchen which is licensed and insured by the Dept. of Agriculture. Initially, I wanted to focus on wedding cakes so I immediately started contacting wedding venues in the area to see if they would include me a wedding cake vendor in their packages. I currently work with over 10 venues and several caterers in the area. While wedding cakes are my main focus, I also make cakes and cookie favors for all occasions. While I don’t have a retail locatio…
