I hope everyone enjoyed a safe yet fun time at Thanksgiving this year. Even celebrating the holidays changed thanks to COVID-19 concerns. Hopefully, that changes soon with positive news of several vaccines on the horizon. However, we still need to keep health at the top of mind at this time of year. I certainly hope that your plans include the Westfield Y's Men's Christmas Tree Lot. It opens tomorrow, November 28th.

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.

westfield events: AddamsFest is Back in Westfield With a Twist - 09/11/20 10:54 AM
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.
AddamsFest 2020 (aka "Alt AddamsFest")It seems rather appropriate that we honor a man whose work embraced the macabre during this, a macabre year. In keeping with COVID-19 safety recommendations, organizers needed to tweak some fan-favorites from past celebrations. Instead of large gatherings like the parade, Family … (2 comments)

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. And presidential election results were broadcast over the radio for the very first time. To celebrate our city's 300th birthday, officials need your help with one of the objects going into the Westfield 300 Time Capsule.

westfield events: Westfield Rainbows Among COVID-19 - 03/27/20 12:52 PM
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)

westfield events: Skating for Smiles in Westfield - 02/21/20 12:17 PM
According to the World Health Organization, cleft lips and palates occur in approximately one out of every 700 children born each year worldwide. The CDC reports 4440 babies born with one or both of these cranial abnormalities in the US each year. Many children retreat from the world to avoid the constant stares or bullying they receive from other kids. They become self-conscious and reserved. Why deprive them of sharing a beautiful smile with the world? Operation Smile can help. And so can you. Just come to the Skating for Smiles event in Westfield on Leap Day.
