Coming 'Round Again to Good Eats

Blogger's Note: The following was submitted by my good, good friends from  the Carousel at Pottstown organization. Yes, it's that time of year again.

The popular and delectable Carousel of Flavor will complete another year's culinary circle Sept. 30 when it returns to Pottstown's award-winning Smith Family Plaza downtown.

Now in its ninth run, the Carousel of Flavor takes advantage of the variety and talent of the region's many fine restaurants and caterers and from 12 to 4 p.m. provides a four-hour forum for them to present their best.

Thyme to Serve Catering stand at the Carousel of Flavor last year.
In return, they provide part of their profits to the Carousel at Pottstown's fundraising campaign.

"This is really one of our most popular events and, to tell the truth, it's popular with our volunteers too. We usually don't feed them this well" joked George Wausnock, president of the Carousel at Pottstown.

Already, 16 area eateries have signed up to participate in the event that will be held in the public space facing Pottstown's proud brick Borough Hall at 100 High St.

If you've ever wondered "how the food is" in one place or another, this is your chance to sample them all using tickets sold for between $2 and $5 and decide for yourself.

And while you can be your own judge, there will be a gathering of professional chefs and culinary students on hand to be the official judges.

So the restaurants will not only be competing for your patronage, but also with each other.

In addition, there is live music, a wine and beer garden, a clown, crafters and so much more!
