In fact, the weatherman says we should expect to see cloudy and wet weather for the foreseeable future.

Westfield Spring Fling Street Fair 2023
The Greater Westfield Area Chamber of Commerce organizes Spring Fling every year. And each year it gets better and better. This year, they cater to all ages. A fun Kids Zone keeps the wee ones occupied with age-appropriate rides and activities. The adults may want to visit the Crossroad beer and wine cafe. Valencia Music and the NJ Workshop of the Arts perform live for fair-goers. And, of course, plenty of food and arts and crafts vendors will be available for all attendees.
Central Ave between E Broad St and North Ave shuts down to everyone but foot traffic for the day (starting at 6 am) to accommodate all fair guests. That means no cars, motorcycles, trucks, vans, skateboarders, bicyclists, or even rollerbladers are allowed during fair hours. For the safety of everyone, please keep pets at home as well. Large groups sometimes make even the calmest animals jumpy.
Please park in the parking lot of the South Ave Train Station. From there, it is a short walk through the North Ave underpass at the Westfield Train Station. Any Westfield resident living on Central or Lenox Avenues must park in nearby municipal lots during Spring Fling hours.
