RiverFest – Reminder of the New River Development in Reading, PA


The recent RiverFest celebration in Reading, PA provided many opportunities to be reminded of the development efforts in progress along the stretch of the Schuylkill River running through the region. RiverPlace Development Corporation’s Bob Behling spent some time with us on camera in July explaining the details.
