Hundreds of people gathered at Garfield Square in Pottsville to welcome in the new year. Pottsville’s tradition is to raise a bottle of their local brew as we all know it would be a crime to drop one.
The parade was scheduled “rain or shine” and we got both. It rained and our area firefighters shined during the 57th Annual Schuylkill County Firefighter’s Convention Parade held Saturday, August 27 in Minersville.
The weather cooperated and thousands of people of all ages came out to enjoy a fun filled day of entertainment, activities and food during the fifth annual Island Park Festival held Saturday, Aug. 20 in Schuylkill Haven.
A little bit of rain did not dampen the spirits of cruisers and spectators. Several hundred antiques, classics, and other vehicles of interest cruised the streets of Pottsville during the 18th annual Great Pottsville Cruise on Sunday, Aug. 14.
Another fun and successful year at the Schuylkill County Fair and thousands of photos are posted from the many events, shows, contests and entertainment captured by SMYP during the fair held Aug. 1 thru Aug. 6, 2011 at the fairgrounds in Summit Station.
