Come Home to Watsontown

Northumberland County Pennsylvania

Watsontown Borough

Northumberland County Pennsylvania

Watsontown is a community of about 2,255 residents located in Northumberland County, in the heart of central Pennsylvania’s beautiful Susquehanna River Valley. Watsontown has historic homes, a fine assortment of shops and restaurants, access to recreation along the Susquehanna River and a great quality of life for our residents. Watsontown offers an easy commute to major employers in more metropolitan areas while maintaining that small town feeling that many of us seek when deciding where to live. That’s why “Come Home to Watsontown” is more than a slogan; it is a way of life.

It has come to our attention that the volunteers who run the Watsontown 4th of July celebration have been the recipients of a large number of unfair complaints on their Facebook page this week. These fine people spend countless hours every year organizing one of the best July 4th celebrations in this part of the state and they had nothing to do with canceling the 2020 event. Again, we understand some of you are frustrated but we ask that you don't direct that frustration at the wrong people. Under the governor's guidelines, updated on May 28th, public gatherings of more than 250 people are prohibited in our current yellow status and will continue to be prohibited should Northumberland County enter green status. The governor's definition of a large public gathering includes any type of community event and I think we can all agree that 4th of July in Watsontown will draw more than 250 people. As much as we would all like to celebrate July 4th as we always have, the Borough of Watsontown does not get to pick and choose which Pennsylvania laws, rules, or mandates we follow. ...
