Super Sunday returns to Downtown West Chester

By Jason Ruiter

Super Sunday returns to downtown West Chester on June 6 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The event takes place on Gay Street between Matlack and Darlington streets.

“Super Sunday is the quintessential family street festival. We have great rides and games for the kids, succulent food for dad to enjoy, and many terrific vendors for mom to shop at. As long as the weather is good, you’re family will have a good time,” said Keith Kurowski, director of West Chester Parks and Recreation.

A fraction of the items and services available on Super Sunday are sterling silver, hand-crafted jewelry, Henna designs and caricatures. Over 120 vendors will be participating.  Some of the foods include funnel-cake, hot dogs, popcorn, ribs, pizza, cheesesteaks, and much more.

There will also be six bands in attendance setting the festive mood while clowns, stilt-walkers, mimes, mascots, and magicians cruise the streets of downtown West Chester. Two out of the six bands will play at the same time on opposite ends of the Gay Street.

“It has everything Swingin’ Summer Thursdays have but more,” Kurowski said.

Antique cars will be on display along Church Street and children will have a chance to meet members of a fire company.  Among the games kids can play are an orbitron, wall-climbing, wack-a-mole, dunk tank, moon bounces, and an air-powered money grab.

Younger  kids will be able to meet Dora the Explorer, Scooby-doo and Clifford the Big Red Dog. These costumed characters will be strolling through downtown.
