There are all the restaurants and merchants too!
Then… Go to Pottstown High School from 2-5pm for more activities, food and fun. There will be over 30 organizational informational tables, displays of police, fire and military equipment, free entertainment, free food, a display of classic cars.
At 7 pm, the varsity football team will take on Pennwood (admission will be charged.)
Check out a more detailed, tentative schedule recently posted by Pottstown.Patch.com. And you can also find out about all the activities by checking out The Mercury’s new Open Doors blog. Last year’s Open Doors was a remarkably positive day for the entire community, and that spirit carried over to many events throughout the past year. Thanks to the many, many volunteers – being led by John Armato and Erika Hornburg-Cooper – who make this day possible.
