Wednesday, June 26, 2019 by PAUL CMIL in Local News

Jay and Renee Cimerol, owners of Catty Corner Neighborhood Pub and Pie, held their official grand opening June 22 at the 301 Mulberry St., Catasauqua, location.

They could not have planned a better opening day; the weather was clear, warm and sunny.

The Cimerols blocked off Mulberry Street for the event, an act that reportedly received some resistance from the neighborhood.

The event included music from Common Bond and a street fair. Children took to the street to create colorful chalk drawings.

“Mom, there’s nothing to do!”

Not so in Catasauqua Borough — the Fun in the Sun program started its 20th year June 17 at Catasauqua Park and Playground, 501 American St.

This year, the leaders who started the program to get kids outside and playing are active again.

“We have all kinds of events set up. We have a miniature golf trip later this week, and they always enjoy that,” Kim Labezius said.

There are plenty of kids around.

“We usually get around 50 most every day,” Lisa Casciotti said.
