WESTFIELD, NJ — Thousands of people flocked to Downtown Westfield May 4 for the 20th Annual Spring Fling Street Fair sponsored by the Greater Westfield Area Chamber of Commerce (GWACC), despite chilly, windy weather for most of the day.
“We’re very happy with the participation,” said GWACC Chairman Chris Devine.
More than 250 booths, rides and games lined the streets downtown, and the crowd enjoyed live entertainment throughout the day.
When booking for the much-anticipated fair, “We actually had a waiting list for food and for vendors,” noted Devine, whose son Jack won the Bovella's Pie-Eating Contest later that afternoon. (Watch our video above to see photos of that contest and more.)
