Firebird Festival Saved, will be held Saturday, December 14th

Council last night voted to approve the new plans for the Firebird Festival, moving the event to Friendship Field on Phoenixville's north side.

From firebirdfestival.com:
The festival has been approved. We thank the Borough council.

The festival date is December 14th 2013. We'll have our 100+ performers on Bridge street and in Friendship Field from 3-7:30 pm, with buses transporting people back and forth. We will have space for a large and interesting Craft vending area. For Food we have our good local vendors, and we have contact with several gourmet trailers from Philly. At 7:30 we'll have a long parade with lanterns, peace birds and other puppets, dancers and drummers, from Bridge up to Fillmore (3/4 of a mile up hill. I know I'm pushing it). If you have something you would like to contribute to the parade, or for any other add-on you think would be good, please let me know. We will light the bird 8:15

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
