things to do in westfield: Glo Downtown Illuminates Westfield in March - 02/26/21 10:49 AM
We tend to focus more on math and sciences when it comes to education. Sometimes, we forget how important art is to a child's development. It also enhances everybody's life overall. Art exists to trigger a response. So, when art sparks a fond childhood memory, you know your day is only going to get better. Glo Downtown wants to be that spark when they illuminate downtown Westfield throughout March.

Tomorrow's the big day. Halloween officially arrives! In Westfield, we celebrate it a little longer thanks to AddamsFest.

Make sure you cast your vote in the Haunt Your House Contest by October 31st, too. But it seems nothing has been able to outspook COVID-19.

October brings all things spooky to light. But in Westfield, this month has special meaning. We celebrate cartoonist and former resident Charles Addams. With a global pandemic taking place right now, organizers needed to come up with a different way to honor him. So, they created an Alt-AddamsFest for 2020.

Last weekend, Governor Murphy declared a State of Emergency for New Jersey. In his Executive Order, he urged all residents to practice good hygiene practices (wash hands often and for 20 seconds at a time). He also asked that we practice social distancing to limit the potential for exposure to the deadly COVID-19. That means no gatherings of more than 10 people. Stay at home whenever possible. Leave the playdates for later. And stay at least six feet away from others when outside. To help kids (and parents) combat "cabin fever", some neighborhoods have started putting up Westfield rainbows in their … (0 comments)
