  • CarolineFCS7

    Are people meeting at noon in a certain place?

    September 7, 2013

    • Sue B.

      Sorry Caroline, I'm not sure as I am working the fair. Guess I was thinking people would be coming at various times so I didn't set anything up, my bad.

      September 8, 2013

    • CarolineFCS7

      Don't feel bad. You let people know the event was going on. I just thought some people would want to meet up and do it together and was surprised no one said anything even though a lot of people signed up to go.

  • Sue B.

    Sorry, I will be working the fair, so I don't want to set anything up for meeting, but maybe someone can suggest a time to connect.
    I would say there are a few places to meet, one end would be in front of CVS right on Main St, or another end is by the Stage, near the train station.

    I have been going to this event since they began. It is a wonderful day, always some good music to be heard and fun meeting new and old friends. Center of town is closed to traffic, a lot of handouts from local vendors and this year Reading has grown a lot in new retail stores adding to even more fun!
