82nd Annual Kimberton Fair Begins On Monday

The popular Kimberton Fair comes back for its 82nd year on Monday, July 26th.
The Kimberton Fair Committee is excited to introduce Reithoffer Shows as the new carnival provider for the 82nd annual fair. Reithoffer Shows features exciting rides for thrill enthusiasts including a roller coaster, Skyflyer and Fireball, as well as rides for the younger set.

In addition to carnival rides, games and great food, the fair offers judged exhibits in home arts, such as needlework, quilting, canning, baking, arts, crafts, photography and gardening, and livestock. Showcasing these exhibits qualifies Kimberton as a “Class A” fair with the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture.

Old-fashioned country fair contests such as an apple pie baking competition, pie-eating contest for kids and two-person log sawing for adults, create a unique fair that reflects the heritage of this once predominantly farming community.

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
