No Dutch Festival this year
If you were planning on heading over to Reading Terminal Market next weekend to check out the Dutch Festival, you are going to have to change your plans. The Amish merchants at the Market have decided to cancel the festival this year in protest to the ousting of Rick’s Steaks (if you haven’t been following the news, Rick’s didn’t get a lease renewal this year, and while it looked for a while like they’d be able to stay, word from the Market board is that they are out and Tony Luke’s is in).
I’m saddened by this, as I’ve always look forward to the Dutch Festival. I especially liked it when they’d block off parts of the street and offer horse-drawn wagon rides around the Market. I guess there’s always next year.
