In the past years Building A Better Boyertown (BBB) has hosted a series of community events on the 3rd Saturday of each month. With the permission of the Borough of Boyertown, BBB’s 8th Annual Cruise Night will hit the streets of Boyertown on July 18, 2015, with a rain date of July 25, 2015.
BBB’s Cruise Night will take place along Route 562/Reading Avenue and the lots of National Penn Bank and the Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles. Registration will be in the parking lot of Good Shepherd Church. Reading Avenue will be closed from 3:00 pm until 10:00 pm, from Third Street to Philadelphia Avenue/Route 73 and Fifth Street to Philadelphia Avenue/Route 73, detour directions will be posted and Philadelphia Avenue will remain open. Alternate parking for spectators will be available in the Town Center parking lot and along Walnut Street.
Over the year’s we’ve had over 300 cars participate and over 800 spectators attend the Car show in Downtown Boyertown!
As they say, what a difference a day makes. Much warmer and the sun was around. We were actually getting hot sitting in Center Court watching semi-final matches. The big drawback today was MUD, MUD, MUD. We endured, despite the mud :). Great time!
The Pottstown Rumble is a great event. It showcases what’s best about Pottstown. It’s well run, people behave themselves, the police were visible, more food than you can shake a stick at (I was told by a player how awesome that is). Usually the players have to get their own food or maybe there are hot dogs. They felt this was a big plus. Especially healthy Vegan cuisine courtesy of iCreate Cafe to keep those athletes in tip-top shape!
The Rumble is a great four day event that pumps a lot of money into the local economy and spreads good will about Pottstown. Can’t put a price tag on good publicity!
Kudos to the Pottstown Parks and Recreation Department for taking great care of one of the best assets in town, Memorial Park!

It was a soggy day but hundreds of volleyball players and spectators jammed into Memorial Park, Pottstown. The weather tomorrow is supposed to be much better so hopefully it will be a brighter day and no rain! This was the third day of the Rumble. Saturday and Sunday are the two biggest days of competition.

The Pottstown Rumble is a 4-day fun-filled event – Thursday June 25 to Sunday, June 28, 2015. Along with amazing competition at all levels of the tournament, the Rumble offers plenty of other activities: food, music, and fun. The Rumble starts off Thursday with the Dream in Gold Clinic hosted by 3-time Olympic Gold Medalist Misty May with her Father Butch May – 1964 Olympian. Other instructors include high level volleyball players and coaches. Friday brings our Pottstown Rumble Juniors Grass Doubles Tournament ages 18 and under. Saturday morning starts off with a bang with a beefed up fireworks show as over 2,000 players eagerly wait to start their day. Saturday afternoon brings Women’s Pro Finals to center court while the Men’s Pro division wraps up Sunday afternoon competing for the $5,000 first place price. There will be gourmet food, clothing vendors, an on-site massage therapist, and high-energy music throughout the weekend!! All visitors welcome!!
All registrations are first come first serve! You will be notified prior to registering if you are NOT at the main field. Anyone registering after June 21 will be charged a late fee of $20 per entry, this includes walk-on’s if space is available. Walk-on’s will most certainly be playing on satellite fields.

POTTSTOWN — The neatly manicured grass courts and multicolored neon nets in Memorial Park got more use Friday during the Dream in Gold Juniors Tournament.
Nearly 100 doubles teams signed up to play in the first juniors tournament at the Rumble, according to Rick Hanson, the director of project management for the Pottstown Rumble.
Hanson said the largest age group was the 18-and-under girls.
Supporters camped out to watch their children play under umbrellas, tents and canopies that sprayed water periodically. There were folding chairs, blankets and battery powered fans to keep the players and their family members cool between matches.
