Every year I take a trip to Phoenixville, Pa for the annual Phoenixville Firebird Festival. It is my favorite event of the years. I started going in 2012 and just keep going through rain, snow, whatever. This year's event will be tomorrow Saturday, December 9. 

Phoenixville is a nice town to get out and explore when you want to get out of Lancaster for a bit. They have a number of small shops and eateries along Bridge Street. The refurbished storefronts along Bridge Street have a really great main street feel centered around the old Colonial Theater and the old foundry site.

This festival is a great time to get out and walk around. The foods is great and plentiful, the small shops in town provide an opportunity for finding a unique Christmas present, and the atmosphere on Friendship Field is charged with excitement as the light the bird.

Check out my Grand Firebirds video below for a quick recap of the past six years!
