Bye Bye Birdie!

IMG_0799

This Saturday the Phoenix will burn (and hopefully be reborn) and yours truly will be there to witness it. This is our first winter in Phoenixville and K and I are excited to partake in its ninth annual Firebird Festival. At 8 PM the almost 30-foot-high wooden phoenix you see above will be ceremonially set afire. The burning symbolizing the rebirth of Phoenixville, which like many former steel town had fallen upon hard times before undergoing a renaissance of sorts. So for those of you who enjoy a really big bonfire, grab a bag of marshmallows and head on over!

  1. Sounds like fun. I’ve always wanted to see a phoenix rise from the ashes.
