POTTSTOWN — Historic re-enactments, a mini balloon festival, cook-offs, a beer tent, local musicians and, of course, fireworks.
Lots and lots of fireworks.
Memorial Day has arrived and thus, the unofficial arrival of the summer season.
Thoughts turn to barbecues, swimming pools and, of course, the Fourth of July.
Last month, we asked people for their thoughts on ways to improve, enhance and better fund Pottstown’s signature summer event and we thought the first unofficial day of summer would be a good day to let everyone know what suggestions we received.
Editor’s note: Very exciting news.
POTTSTOWN — Take a deep breath, Pottstown Rumble fans.
