Downtown Pottstown Christmas/Holiday Event Schedule

Pottstown Christmas Decorations

In a follow up post, I would like to say kudos to whoever was responsible for putting up the snowflakes.  It appears that most of or all of the lights were fixed this year.  The downtown looked ten times better than last year. 

The snowflakes are needed to make the downtown more festive as the garland wrapped light posts don’t give off sufficient light on their own.

Thanks for showing some civic pride Pottstown!

Pottstown Christmas Decorations

People have taken advantage of the milder weather and outdoor Christmas decorations are popping up all over the Pottstown area.

Driving through downtown tonight I noticed that the decorations on High Street are up or mostly up.  The exception being the snowflakes on the polls downtown.  Not sure if we aren’t done yet or if we aren’t putting them up this year.

My comment about the snowflakes is this.  There needs to be something besides the garland and wreaths on the light poles.  However, the snowflakes either need to be repaired or replaced.  Last year half the lights were out.  Sorry but that looks like crap! 

Smith Plaza looks awesome again.   The Brickhouse looked nice as we drove by and looked in the front door. 

So powers that be….please do something with those ratty looking snowflakes!  It doesn’t make a very nice statement if they are in disrepair.  Thanks!
