WESTFIELD, NJ — Thousands of people gathered under sunny skies in downtown Westfield Sept. 22 for the annual FestiFall Street Fair, sponsored by the Greater Westfield Area Chamber of Commerce (GWACC).

Individuals, families and even some pets filled the streets, which were closed to traffic for the day. Booths run by vendors and organizations from across the state of New Jersey and beyond lined the streets, from noodle carts to jewelry vendors to health-related services to political candidates to local houses of worship. All the while, live music filled the air.

At the Westfield Police Department’s mobile command center, Officer Lisa Perotta spent time with attendees.

“We gave away balloons, badges, bicycle helmets and more balloons. An absolutely great day,” said Perotta.

“The people who you see at a street fair like GWACC's  Festifall in Westfield are neighbors,” said GWACC Executive Director Heather Robinson. “Sometimes neighbors from a few towns away, but neighbors, and friends, nonetheless—on stage, showing their products and services, and enjoying the rides and great food. Neighbors supporting neighbors. We are so fortunate to live here. The chamber is so proud to lead this Westfield tradition, and could never accomplish it without the amazing support of the town of Westfield and the Downtown Westfield Corporation.”
