Every 2nd Friday of the month, the West Reading shops and restaurants celebrate with “2nd Friday on the Avenue” hosted by the West Reading Community Revitalization Foundation (WRCRF). 2nd Friday on the Avenue is a time to celebrate and recognize our independent shops and locally owned restaurants! Join us Friday, December 9th in West Reading!

December 9th 2nd Friday events and promotions include:

  • The Cooper Victorian Carolers will be singing on the Avenue Fridays and Saturdays in December. Join them on 2nd Friday from 5-7pm as they stroll in front of our shops and restaurants. Caroling events are sponsored by the West Reading Community Revitalization Foundation.
  • Art Plus Gallery, 604 Penn Avenue, is hosting an opening reception for “Metamorphosis” on 2nd Friday from 5-8pm featuring the woodturning artistry of Tim Kravatz. Tim’s genius for turning blocks of wood, often rather gnarly ones to begin with, into creations of extraordinary beauty and imagination will be on full display in this holiday show. In addition to major works, there will be new arrays of his ever popular bracelets, birdhouses, and ornaments. The exhibit continues through December.
