The rain tried to put an end to a successful First Friday
What did you when First Friday rained out? Did you stay to watch The Calhouns at Railroad Plaza? Which of you grabbed a slice or two at Main Street Pizza? I'm sure others started a tab at Montella's or Molly's. How about some light shopping, and why not? You want to have a good time, you've got money and ... you probably never knew that shop was there. Our community loves to gather. Lansdale loves to gather. Call it a fellowship, if you will. It was more than just a meeting of the minds at 3rd & Walnut Friday night: A visual artist and a binaural artist came together under one roof to put on a great show. Sellersville resident Amy Rims had her Five and Dime Art Show in the upstairs ballroom - which is accessible without going through the …

Lansdale's Fun-A-Day show exceeds expectations in both quality and attendance
As a sign that the arts are alive and well in Lansdale, hundreds of area residents attended Friday night's Fun-A-Day show at Third and Walnut, shattering the originally expected attendance. The show -- which featured the works of local artists who participated in January's Fun-A-Day project -- began nearly half-an-hour early, as groups of eager art patrons couldn't wait to make their way inside.

This year's show had an overwhelming supply of works from students and faculty.
North Penn High School can be an overwhelming place to visit, with its huge size and seemingly neverending hallways.
