A great line up of entertainmenttt kicks off with a Ceili on Friday night with Tom Mchugh with Jim and Kevin McGillian. On Saturday gates open at 11:00 and Oliver McElone hits the stage at 12 noon followed by the very upbeat tunes of the Bogside Rouges and Wildwoods Irish Weekends favorite Paddy's Well.

Sunday morning will begin with an outdoor Mass with the Reverend Andrew McCormick and vocalist Sara Agnew. At 12 noon the music starts up again with the Misty Isle who are getting back together for this festival and to finish off the festival will be Celtic Spirit.

Over the weekend there will be Irish Dancers and Irish Thunder Pipes and Drums.

The festival will be rain or shine because of the pavilion that will also protect you from the sun. Bring a chair just in case and the cost in small. $5.00 for Friday and $7.00 for Saturday or Sunday.

All proceeds will go toward AOH charities that help support the community and those in need.

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

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
