Letter: Chamber Explains Street Fair Cancellation

Public Safety considered in light of threatening weather; more street fairs scheduled.

Letter: Chamber Explains Street Fair Cancellation

Dear Editor:

On behalf of the Millburn-Short Hills Chamber of Commerce, I would like to thank the Township of Millburn, its Police Department and Department of Public Works, the business community, residents and the more than 100 expected vendors for their understanding of the decision made to cancel the annual Street Fair scheduled for Sunday, April 22.

With the threat of major wind and rain storms, a determination was made, that despite the policy to hold the show “rain or shine,” public safety needed to be the primary concern.

For those of you who were disappointed that Street Fair was canceled, we want you to know that two additional Millburn-Short Hills Street Fairs are on the calendar for the remainder of 2012. The Fall Street Fair will be held in downtown Millburn on Sunday, September 23, followed by a new event scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 4, 2012.  The November show will be held along upper Millburn Avenue in Short Hills.

Both shows will feature dozens of vendors, music, entertainment, children’s activities, food and more.

Again, we thank everyone for their support and look forward to seeing you at our two Fall shows.  For additional information, please email the Chamber office at info@millburnshorthillschamber.com

Best regards,

Karol McNulty

Executive Director, Millburn-Short Hills Chamber of Commerce
