CRANFORD - In November of 2018, Cranford was chosen as the #1 Downtown in New Jersey by NJ.com. On June 9 from 1-5 p.m., local organizations will come together in a day of celebration with “Celebrate Cranford.”

The activities that day will include music, Cranford Fit Fest, Kid Zone with games and a rock climbing wall, and a Sloppy Joe Eating Contest. Celebrate Cranford will take place at Eastman Clock Plaza, as well as on North Union Avenue from Alden to Springfield.

“Winning the designation of top downtown in New Jersey is something we’re extremely proud of,” said Downtown Cranford Director Gabe Bailer. “The Celebrate Cranford event is a recognition of all of the people, organizations, and businesses that made this award possible.”
