Kimberton Fair Begins Today

The 83rd Annual Kimberton Fair begins today.
It’s that time of year again for a longtime summer tradition: The Kimberton Fair is coming to town from July 25 to 30 at the Kimberton Volunteer Fire Co. fairgrounds, off of Route 113. (Use 752 Pike Springs Road, Phoenixville, if using GPS.)

In its 83rd year, the fair will offer a plethora of activities including viewing livestock, home arts, an appearance by the Phillie Phanatic, rides and contests.

Contests this year include old fashioned log sawing, pie eating and the Baby Contest.

Returning this year is Hogway Speedway’s racing pigs. A fireworks display will be shown at 10 p.m. on Friday, July 29.

And of course, the famous doughnuts will be sold.

Kimberton Fair Secretary Karen Dobson said money raised during the volunteer-run fair is used for next year’s event and the rest is donated to the Kimberton Volunteer Fire Co.

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
