Thousands flocked to High Street in downtown Pottstown today for the 13th Annual Carousel of Flavor. This event is the primary fundraiser for the Carousel at Pottstown and one of the largest events hosted in the borough. It turned out to be a beautiful day after some rain overnight and early this morning seemed menacing.
The trolley was carrying people from the festival site to the carousel building on regular intervals. When I went, the trolley was full. I noticed many folks taking advantage of the free ride.
The carousel is hopefully going to be up and running by the end of October. This has been a decade long project that has finally reached completion. We congratulate the Carousel committee and everyone involved for making this project a reality!
