Every now and then there are those weekends that are jam-packed with activities. This warm and sunny weekend was just such a time. If you live in the TriCounty Area here’s what went on.
Saturday and Sunday in Memorial Park a Native American Powwow took place. There was music, dancing, food etc… Nice write up in the Mercury about it with pictures:

Today, Sly Fox Brewing Company held their annual Bock Fest and Goat Races in Pottstown at the site of their brewery on the Circle of Progress. Thousands of people attended. The event featured live music, food, beer and goat races. Here are some pictures from this afternoon:
COLLEGE TOWNSHIP, PA — To his knowledge, John Sanchez is the only American Indian faculty member at Penn State and when his kids were in the elementary and high school system, they were the only American Indian students.
Though he loves his job, Sanchez uses the annual traditional American Indian powwow as a way to recharge his batteries and interact with other Indians.
After this year, he will have to have to find another way to do that.
The 11th annual event took place at Mount Nittany Middle School on Saturday and Sunday, but Sanchez, the event coordinator, said it will be the last. Moving closer to retirement, Sanchez said the event planning takes too much time on top of his job teaching media ethics in the College of Communications and his distinguished professorship with the Schreyer Honors College.
