Oh but trust me these people that do those horrible things don't care what is going on.I lived there for 2 yrs.right on white st.and when you get up for work at 4:30 am everymorning for work and 4-5 nights out of 7 days your being woke up in the middle of the night because theres drunks in the middle of the street fighting or they need to do there drug deals and your laying there wondering if gun shots are gonna go off. You just don't feel save to leave your kids to go out to play even in your own back yard.THE OFFICERS THAT THEY DO HAVE ON NOW ARE VERY GOOD I GIVE THEM ALOT OF CREDIT THEY DO A GREAT JOB. WHAT THAT TOWN NEEDS IS A ENAMA!!!!!!!

Life in the country is no different than the city! why? Hey heres why-dont forget to invite the ex mayor of weissport himself who was recently convicted of running a major drug ring out of his house WHILE he was mayor, along with his partner in crime, the manager of the old Carusos restaurant which is now Sapporos or something like it. yea let the good ole times with the good ole boys begin.

I am glad you moved out of Weissport, Because people like you is what gives Weissport a bad name. I raised my children in Weissport. In the last 30 years of living in Weissport I can count on my one hand how many times I was woke up in the middle of the night. I lived on both ends of White St. I was never afraid in Weissport and I still am not. I like to know where you moved to that nothing bad happens, and everything is perfect. It must be in your dreams. Because no town is perfect, you should watch your local news.

What gives an area a bad name is it's community standards. If you hire a drug dealer for mayor, allow buidings to rot on your streets, can't spell, act like racists and promote outhouse races at your friendly neighborhood WebToeFest then don't be surprised if people think you're a bunch of bumpkins and take their business elsewhere.
education needed

not impressed is right on the money. as a frequent visitor to this area. I think this municipality needs to look at itself in a mirror, and not bury their heads in the beer suds.

I'm beginning to believe there is a misunderstanding with regard to what a "redneck" is. The license plates and other items I've seen that are sold in tourist traps and the like, and that have "Redneck" printed on them, all have the Confederate flag in the background! Sorry, but we Pennsylvanians are north of the Mason-Dixon Line, and that seems to say we are not "Rednecks", at least in this connotation. Perhaps we DO need more education here, such as History and Geography!
show some respect

it was the former mayor that was arrested for drugs not the present mayor She has worked he rbutt off trying to clean Weissport up She started a police dept. WITH NO MONEY and it is very successful. We appreciate all that she has done for our little borough.

I hope the event is a great success. I would love to go, but have plans all weekend. And for the locals that are against the event - DON'T GO AND SHUT YOUR MOUTHS. I don't like the gay pride fest in Allentown, so I don't go, but I don't bad mouth the event. To each their own. But good luck to the organizers of the event - I wish you lovely weather and tons of fun!

not an issue of history or geography, is about a lifestyle with very little positive attributes.

There has been much discussion on this festival, obviously some people have put alot of work into making it happen. I wish them a successful event. Maybe people should wait and see what it is like before they critize it. Maybe it will be a nice little community event and raise some money for this town. I drive through Weissport every day, sometimes numerous times and I think Weissport is a cute little town.
I wish them well, and plan to come check things out on sunday.
