Plenty Hit the Street for Downtown Fair
The chilly weather didn't keep people away from downtown Millburn for the annual chamber of commerce street fair.
Plenty of people headed to downtown Millburn on Sunday to attend the annual street fair despite the chilly weather.
The annual event is sponsored by the Millburn-Short Hills Chamber of Commerce and brings plenty of craft vendors to the street plus plenty of food, music and activities for children.
Standing over vats of boiling oil during street fairs is not an enviable position to be in. But Gerad Capizzi wasn't breaking a sweat as he monitored the zeppole bobbing in the oil. "I get burned about five times a day," Capizzi chuckled, "but I have ice water and the best burn cream around on hand. So I'm all good."
Ironically EMS volunteers had a booth set up a few steps away at Saturday's street fair. The vendors ranged from home improvemet companies to local arts and crafts dealers and local charitable organizations.
New Eyes for the Needy's table held vintage eyeglasses, dentures and jewelery. The organization runs a thrift store out of their location selling housewares and jewelery. Millburn high school students from the New Global Citizen's group were soliciting donations for children in need.
