It started out that Downingtown was going to be on Fox 29's Jenny On The Block, but then the decision was made to move to Kennett Square where the downtown noise from traffic is not as loud. Originally, it was rumored that all that is great about D'town would be featured, but then Kennett got the go ahead and D'town was out.
Now Downingtown is back in the running, but what puzzles me is why they are featuring Victory Brewery only. Yes Victory does sponsor a lot of events, but they aren't the only thing that is great about Downingtown, in fact I think they come in a slow 10th maybe. D'town has awesome parks, great trails, abundant history and is all about being a Good Neighbor. THAT is what this town should be known for not the restaurants and certainly not for the many drinking establishments. We have some of the best fireworks on the 4th, Halloween in D'town hasn't been rivaled in years, the best Christmas Parade, businesses within walking distance of home, an above average school system and yet all of those are not what is being featured?
We seem to forget in chasing the spotlight that which has made us great. The restaurants that have been here 30 years, the new ones who sponsor local events (not put on by the restaurant itself) without question, the history that busts at the seams when you walk through the town, the beauty of the Brandywine even at flood stage. So I ask again, Mr. Mayor, Main Street and the Chamber why those things are not what was chosen to highlight in Downingtown...because those are what make it desirable to be here in the borough.
