Editor's Note: Due to technical glitches, we were unable to publish photos from the Aug. 23 Lansdale Founders Day event in a timely manner. Thus, we provide the coverage here today. Better late than never.

The rain did not keep people away from the train.

The fourth-annual Lansdale Founders Day event on Aug. 23 was a damp success, with hundreds taking advantage of the New Hope & Ivyland Railroad round-trip excursion train to Souderton from Lansdale train station.

Attendees also spent hard-earned dollars on the hard-earned fruits of the labor of local farmers at the Lansdale Farmers' Market. 

The event began with a posthumous Lansdale Lifetime Achievement Award ceremony for Stephen Frederick, the former North Penn School District administrator and Montgomery County Concert Band founder. 

Founders Day was also the venue for celebration of Fairmount Fire Company's 125th Anniversary celebration, which culminated in a two-hour firefighter water battle on Vine Street in front of the station.

Lansdale Library also dedicated its Lois Weber Memorial Garden to the longtime library volunteer and employee, who died last year in a car accident. 

The well-attended event culminated at 9 p.m. with fireworks from Memorial Park.
