Editor’s note: Nice mention of iCreate Cafe in the article as a first time participant. We enjoyed the Carousel of Flavor again this year. The carousel itself is looking great. They are making excellent progress toward completing it. A very large event that showcases Pottstown in a positive light.
POTTSTOWN, PA — In its 10th year, the Carousel of Flavor proved to be a hit again.
“Word’s getting out,” said the event’s chairman, Miles Feather.
A board member of the Pottstown Carousel, the long-term project to bring a carousel as an attraction for the borough, Feather said 20 restaurants took part in the event this year, three more than last year.
That included nine different new establishments from the year before to go along with some of the standbys, such as The Very Best and Grumpy’s.
Yesterday’s Ninth Annual Carousel of Flavor in Pottstown was a smashing success. The very large crowd was happily eating, listening to live music and people were catching up with old friends they kept running into. The weather, in the upper sixties, was perfect to work up an appetite.
Pottstown needs to do a large downtown event at least six times a year to draw people into the borough. If there is something worthwhile going on, people will show up; as evidenced by the thousands who came out yesterday to enjoy themselves.
We were happy to see former Pottstown Borough Manager Jason Bobst in attendance. Jason looked well-rested and refreshed as he greeted the many people who were clearly glad to see him. Evidently his new job is agreeing with him! We think that showed a great deal of character for Jason to show up and support Pottstown. How many borough councilors were there yesterday? I didn’t see any. I only saw the mayor.
Congratulations to everyone who worked hard to make yesterday’s event a huge success!
