westfield events: Downtown Westfield Girls Night Out 2021 is a Go - 09/17/21 01:19 PM
The global pandemic left so much of our lives up in the air last year. We had to adapt to a new "normal". Fortunately, some things returned for 2021. Outdoor events like Sweet Sounds Downtown and Cranford's own Summer Sounds series made summer that much better here in Union County. Alas, summer is over. Fall is in the air. Now, it is time to bring back Downtown Westfield Girls Night Out.

westfield events: Westfield National Night Out 2021 - 07/23/21 01:19 PM
We love our first responders (police, firefighters, EMTs, etc.). They are the ones that run to help us when we need them. But they work better with the community's assistance to report and solve crimes. This keeps us safe. Therefore, it benefits us to get to know our first responders, including our police force. That is why they are hosting Westfield National Night Out 2021 on August 3rd at the North Side train lot.

westfield events: Downtown Westfield Sidewalk Sale 2021 - 07/09/21 12:44 PM
Many of our annual events went "virtual" last year. Girl's Night Out, clothing drives, and even beloved holiday events like Santa Claus Lane included severe restrictions to allow them to take place. Fortunately, we see life returning somewhat back to normal thanks to the percentage of people receiving their COVID-19 vaccinations. Our local small businesses bared the brunt of economic hardship last year. It is time to show them some love again. So, grab your checkbooks and head out to the Downtown Westfield Sidewalk Sale 2021 next week.

westfield events: Westfield Mini Grand Prix 2021: Off to the Races - 06/11/21 10:44 AM
At the end of April, we saw a return of weekend activities on Quimby Street. With COVID-19 cases dwindling in New Jersey, Governor Murphy relaxed mask mandates late last month. So, we should see even more fun summertime events taking place in our fair city. Unfortunately, the weatherman predicts a bit of a soggy weekend. But that will not hinder the very first Westfield Mini Grand Prix. Why? Because they set up tents to protect you from the elements.

westfield events: Quimby Street Activities Start Up Again in Downtown Westfield - 04/30/21 01:11 PM
Last summer, City officials tried something new. They restricted vehicular traffic on Quimby Street to just one way on the weekends. They hoped to encourage more people to get outside and enjoy the fresh air in a safe manner. Then, they lifted the vehicular restrictions during the winter months. But, starting today (April 30th), Quimby Street activities are back.

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.

I hope everyone enjoyed a safe yet fun time at Thanksgiving this year. Even celebrating the holidays changed thanks to COVID-19 concerns.

westfield events: Westfield Halloween Costume Contest Goes Virtual - 10/30/20 09:44 AM
Tomorrow's the big day. Halloween officially arrives! In Westfield, we celebrate it a little longer thanks to AddamsFest. If you ventured downtown any time over the past couple of weeks, you probably saw some crazily decorated windows, took a walk along the Tamaques Haunted Trail, or ventured into Mystical Mindowaskin Park. 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. So, to enjoy the holiday in safety while still dressing up, this year's Westfield Halloween Costume Contest goes virtual.

westfield events: More AddamsFest Fun Announced in Westfield - 10/02/20 01:23 PM
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. Haunted trails, scary movies, painted windows in downtown shops. They all make appearances in the upcoming weeks. Just recently, organizers announced even more fun added to their schedule of events. But they need your help to make them happen.

Even with New Jersey in lockdown for several weeks due to COVID-19, this year seems to have flown by. In just under three weeks, we enter October. That means pumpkin spice lattes, cooler temperatures, leaves falling from the trees, and AddamsFest. Yes, the annual tribute to Westfield's favorite son returns next month with a pandemic twist.

One hundred years ago was the beginning of what would eventually be known as "The Roaring Twenties". Women were officially allowed to vote. F Scott Fitzgerald's first novel, This Side of Paradise, was released. A world pandemic, the Spanish Flu, wound down.
