Every year on the fourth weekend of April, West Chester hosts its very own international film festival. Started nearly two decades ago by enthusiasts grabbing space and setting up projectors in empty downtown storefronts. Today the West Chester Film Festival has a permanent set up at the Uptown! Knauer Performing Arts Center but the experience is no less dynamic - if anything, it’s more so.
As flooding gets worse around the borough, West Chester has money to spend - but does it have a master plan to fix the problem? A look at what is planned for this year.

Wishing everyone a happy Easter but before we get there - let's catch up.
West Chester Area School Board members are back at the job, but for how long? A look at the case against masking that could upend the district.

Plus, the West Chester Area School district lays out its plan to remain one of the state's top districts, Faunbrook B&B is for sale and a Henderson grad needs your help. It’s never dull around here.

We are about to embark on a new pool adventure. After years as members of the YMCA outdoor pool, we have decided to break off and try something new, or rather, something old. Goodbye waterpark. It’s back to basics. A pool, some grills, and a basketball hoop, but I am hoping the opportunity to run around with friends (and the peace that comes from fully-entertained kids) will more than make up for it. Need a place to dip your toes this summer? Here are your options.
West Chester's new Restaurant Week is almost here. How it works and who's participating.

It's been an interesting week. Who's ready? Let's catch up.
