A Fun (and Filling) Time Was Had By All!!

Were You There?


Here are a sample of postings on Facebook:

Kathie Gauger Mackie - Yes, I was there. It's a great event. The weather was perfect. Everything I had was yummy.

Kim Ott Churach - Woogies ribs and the Milkmans cannoli!!! The Best.

Pottstown Homeowner at Large - Now this is how it should be done! Lots to eat, bands, no-hassle parking, trolley rides, 2 for 1 mini-golf. Think BIG people. This is the type of event that brings people from out of town.


The reviews are in and the decision is unanimous...

As Evan Brandt proclaimed in his blog, Digital Notebook, quoted here:

11th Carousel of Flavor is a Hit!

The eleventh Carousel of Flavor restaurant festival was held on High Street Sunday and it was bigger and than ever. This is, without a doubt, one of the best events Pottstown hosts, one of many, and that's saying something considering how fond I am of the Volleyball Rumble (where I get to serve -- drink -- Sly Fox Beer) and the growing swell of Halloween events in town. ...

Volunteer Spotlight -

Volunteers are the lifeblood for The Carousel at Pottstown. Without their selfless dedication the Carousel would be nothing. Aside from the construction of the bump-out and the replacement of the roof, ALL the work to bring the Carousel to life has been achieved through the efforts of people whose only payment is the satisfaction of creating something very special. Whether their contribution is in construction, fundraising, marketing, as an artist or even as gopher extrodinaire, each volunteer is a valued part of our Carousel Family.

Bob Hakun received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Kutztown University and spent many years in the toy industry, designing Halloween costumes and masks. He enjoyed learning the screen-printing process, and the sculpting and casting methods used for making the masks. He later worked in the offset printing industry, using the computer graphics programs to produce hi-quality printed material. In his free time he enjoys doing oil-painting, digital photography and creating sculptural artwork. He enjoys working on the carousel because it appeals to everyone, no matter what their age or background.
