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!
