Don’t miss the last installment of the Summer Films in the Park series presented by Mt. Pleasant Mainstreet. The curtain will go up on the final film of the summer at 9pm on Saturday in Lamont Park, featuring The Goonies. The movie will be in English with Spanish subtitles. Everyone had a great time at the last movie night, so make sure you’re in on the fun before you have to wait until next summer for another outdoor, bilingual, cinematic experience!

Main Street is also looking for volunteers 30 minutes before and after the movie. Email Rebecca at We did it last time and its a great way to get to know your neighbors.


We’re smack dab at the height of tomato season, Kids! What a great reason to head over to the Farmer’s Market to choose from no fewer than eight different varieties of luscious, vine-ripened goodies (as well as some fresh, homemade sauce from the Quaker Valley Farm stand). Also new from Quaker Valley this week: red and yellow seedless watermelons and white and green cantaloupes. AND there are enough varieties of potatoes available to keep you knee deep in exotic spuds until Labor Day!

Interestingly, Truck Patch Farms has something available called “chocolate and pineapple mint.” Now I’m not sure if those are two different kinds of mint, one crazy kind of mint, or they are just missing punctuation so they actually have chocolate, pineapple, and mint, but believe you me, I’ll be checking it out.

Richfield Farm is looking for help at their stand during the morning rush, so let them know if you’re interested in community focused employment (or better, volunteering)!! Better get there early to help out, I’m sure there will be some farm fresh produce in it for you!

Note: We’re so sorry we’ve been slightly remiss about keeping you updated these past few weeks, but we pledge to do better. Stay tuned for upcoming posts about: breakfast at Don Jaime’s, late-night Bibim Bab at Adam Express, and a full review of Ramona’s Day Spa!

Never too early to start thinking about the weekend is what I say…

This weekend, on Saturday, July 12, Mt. Pleasant Main Street will be showing Shrek in Spanish with English subtitles as part of their Films in the Park summer series. The movie will be shown in, you guessed it, Lamont Park (same place as the Mt. Pleasant Farmer’s Market).

The movie will begin at 9:00pm, but don’t miss the Independent Business Celebration beforehand at 7:00pm. (If you can’t tell already, independent business is something we celebrate everyday here at Climbing the Mount.) What is this celebration all about? From our friends over at the Main Street offices: “How well do you know Mt. Pleasant? Play “Buy Local Bingo” and test your knowledge of the local businesses on Mt. Pleasant Street. Win prizes from Dos Gringos, Boveda Tribes and more! Bingo starts at 7:30pm!” Bingo?? I’m in!

Also, if you’re looking to volunteer (and I know some of you are judging from our poll), Main Street is still looking for some help setting up before the movie and cleaning up after the movie, as well as for some volunteers to work a table during the Farmer’s Market that morning. If you’re interested in volunteering, email Karen at
