Phoenixville Firebird Festival

Friday, December 5th, 2014

December 6, 2014 the annual Phoenixville FIrebird Festival will take place.

The parade starts at Bank Street (right across from the Colonial Theatre) at 7:30 with drummers, dancers and puppeteers. Who all will be there is still an unknown, but that’s where improvisation comes in very handy. It will be a mixed group, which can be good, if we keep changing who takes the lead. Its about a 20 minutes walk up to the bird site (0.88 mile). It might sound long, but last year we had a lot of fun with it in snowy weather. The stage will be mic’ed this year for the drumming.
