Photos by Tom Kelly IV The 2013 Blob Fest kicked off Friday night July 12, 2013 with the “Run Out” at the Colonial Theatre in downtown Phoenixville. Hundreds of screaming fans ran from the theatre into the pouring rain on Bridge Street, fleeing from the Blob.

Screaming fans came running out of the Colonial Theatre into the rain Friday night to open the annual Phoenixville BlobFest, an annual festival celebrating the movie The Blob that was filmed in Phoenixville in 1958. The weekend of festivities includes screenings of the movie, street fair vendors, food, fun, costume contests, along with other contests, live entertainment and more.
