  • When: Saturday, October 15th, 12 pm to 4 pm (Raindate: October 16th)

Westfield AppleFest 2022

Westfield AppleFest 2022 takes place on the lawn outside of the Reeve House. Funds raised from the event benefit the Children’s Specialized Hospital. Learn about the hospital’s history through a special presentation and slide show. Local author Fran Bovella conducts a reading of her children’s book “A Day at the Beach”. The little ones will enjoy all of the activities set up on the grounds, which include a treasure hunt, games, and even some pumpkin decorating. Grab a bite to eat at the Apple Cafe. Listen to the “Save Mary Band” perform. And all of this is just $5 per person. Veterans and kids under three get in for free.

Now, the weatherman predicts sunny skies for Saturday’s AppleFest. But, if Mother Nature has other ideas and turns those bright skies gray and rainy, the festival will take place on Sunday instead.

AddamsFest Events

Just a quick reminder of which AddamsFest activities are taking place this weekend. On Saturday, October 15th, you may take a Lantern Cemetery Tour at Westfield’s Presbyterian Church on Mountain Ave from 5 pm to 6:30 pm. Public voting for favorites in the Haunt Your House Contest is going on right now. So, visit each decorated Westfield home and vote for your favorite three. Addams Family Fun Day takes place in Downtown Westfield on Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm. And you might want to take a stroll around Mindowaskin Pond or through the Central Ave underpass to see Addams-inspired artwork created by our own talented local artists anytime throughout October.

Bike MS NYC 2022

Last but not least, we are in our final push for fundraising before the Bike MS NYC 2022 ride takes place. As of the writing of this post, we have just eight more training days until the October 23rd ride through Manhattan. We are still shy of the $5000 goal Team Guys and Dolls set for this year. Please, please dig deep and donate what you can to help us reach our goal. Every little bit helps fight the terrible disease that is Multiple Sclerosis. Thank you.
