MILLBURN, NJ – Sponsored by the Millburn/Short Hills Chamber of Commerce, Millburn Ave. was lined with vendors from the Township and neighboring communities to showcase their wares and service to a crowd of hundreds.

The bright and sunny day drew in families from Millburn, Springfield, Union and several other neighboring towns.  Volunteers from Millburn nonprofits such as Down The Block, the Millburn/Short Hills Desi Club and Millburn’s Fourth of July Committee came out along with several businesses like Millburn-based Ubreak, Ifix, YB Fitness and ShopRite participated in the daylong event.

Music, food and activities for young children added to the attractiveness of this annual event.

The aim of the Millburn/Short Hills Chamber of Commerce is to “help promote a vibrant and inviting community where existing businesses can succeed and new businesses seek out an ideal destination.”
