River Town Montgomery

August 12, 2014 - Barb Barrett
This week the Luminary is highlighting Montgomery, its beautiful park, the Riverside, and the wonderful little shops that welcome visitors. My husband and I took the trailer to the Riverside campground and got a site along the river. On Friday we were able to kayak up and down the Susquehanna River. The Sanguedolce family will rent out canoes and kayaks, however if you have your own, you can use the public boat access just off Water Street across from the park. By the way it is located just beyond the first Little League ball field (Stahl's Field) established outside Williamsport when Carl Stotz, the founder of Little League organized official teams.

Later that day we went to the Flea Market just off Thomas Ave. and I purchased a small wooden table, a vintage ceramic planter hand painted in gold, and a large platter from Germany with a painted scene.

On Saturday, August 9, in Montgomery there was a benefit wine fest, very well attended, and they ran out of the wine-tasting glasses in the first hour that were sponsored by the American Legion. It was a beautiful afternoon with live music, good food and local wine.

Also that afternoon in the downtown area, vendors and shops greeted visitors with their monthly Montgomery Second Saturday event. Again more live music, artists on the sidewalk, and more delicious food. My granddaughter was with me for the afternoon and she was delighted to receive a free book from the Montgomery library. We enjoyed the park, the playground and the river. Montgomery is so well deserving of being a designated "River Town."

The whole weekend was very festive, busy and fun, and yes, there is lots to do in Montgomery. Did I mention that the kids also have a skating park too? And the future holds a river trail, possibly linking to Muncy.
