Each week, Phoenixville Patch finds five great events for families. This week, we hunted down quite a variety. Need a night out? We have that. Want information on how kids can deal with bullying? There’s an event for that. Want to introduce your youngster to the beauty of classic Batman on this big screen? Yeah, you’ll find that, too.
As always, if you notice something missing, post in the comments and if it’s not in the events calendar, you can add it there, too.
