Flea Market, FREE Theater, Fireworks and More

St. Pat's parking lot. 
One note before I list the events for the week. If you're going on vacation, you can ask the Norristown Police Department to check on your property while you're away. Just go to this link and download the form. It doesn't say what to do with it, but I assume you just bring it down to the police station at 235 E Airy (rear)

Saturday, 9 am to 2 pm at St. Patrick's Church parking lot (Dekalb and Oak). Yard Sale to benefit St. Pat's. More than 2 dozen vendors. Yard sale bargains, hotdogs, Mexican food, snacks and drinks.

Sunday at 2:30 pm and 4 pm, Theatre Horizon (401 Dekalb) will host a FREE show for kids called HERO SCHOOL. The show is 45 minutes long and is best enjoyed by kids 3-8 years old (though parents may bring others--a baby carrier is recommended for the very young). They only have room for 30 people for each performance, so RSVP to, with your preferred showtime and how many kids and grown-ups in your party.

Sunday, 7 pm at the Elmwood Park bandshell, Sunday concerts in the Park continues. This week, Skitty Show is the featured act. Bring a lawn chair or blanket. The snack stand will be open.

Sunday in Elmwood Park, right after the concert, Fireworks! (since they were rained-out last Monday). If you park on surrounding streets, please be considerate of the neighborhood. Don't leave litter, don't block driveways, hydrants or alleys, and don't park where there are no parking signs.

Monday at 9 am, PAL Tennis Camp begins at the Eisenhower courts at Coolidge and Harding. Registrations being accepted now. For ages 7-11. Goes 5 weeks. Balls, racquets and t-shirts provided. $125 per child or $150 per family. Contact PAL at 610-278-8040.

Obtain a Free Credit Report from Major Credit Bureaus with Scores. Learn How to Improve Your Credit Score. Register online at

Tuesday at 7 pm at Municipal Hall. Zoning Board Hearing. On the agenda is someone who wants to build a convenience store where the gas station is on W. Main between Markley and Barbadoes. This is a rescheduled meeting from June 28. The regular Planning Commission meeting is also scheduled the same night, though there's no agenda yet.
EVERY WEDNESDAY from now until October 2016 at 9 to 11 am at Marshall Street Elementary School. Families can receive a bag of fresh, organic vegetables FREE to the first 75 Norristown families who show up each week. FREE bag of produce courtesy of Greener Partners, Longview Farm of Collegeville. (Note from Elena: I go to Longview's pick-you-own events--their veggies are really fresh and sweet, and the people are super nice.)

Thursday from 11 am-2:30 pm, Main st. between Swede and Dekalb. Farmers market. Produce from Lone Wolf Farms. For more info, call CADCOM at 610-277-6363
