Preliminary details for the 4th Annual Firebird Festival have been announced. This year's festival will be held on Saturday, December 15th. Based on last year's schedule, you can expect events to begin around town that afternoon leading up to the lighting of the Firebird at around 8pm. For more information on the history of the Firebird Festival, see firebirdfestival.com. As of this writing, the schedule listed is from last year's festival but I'd imagine it will be getting updated shortly. Once it does, I will be sure to update you.
On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm. For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page , to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community. As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website
