Join us for The Health & HarvestFest on Springfield Avenue, our annual celebration of Fall on Springfield Avenue. This year we are again joining with the Maplewood Loves Wellness Health Fair and creating one wonderful family event which will offer something for every member of your family to enjoy. There will be lots of great things for the kids to do and just as much for the parents.

For the kids, there will be pumpkin painting, a bounce house, pony rides, face painting, glitter tattoos, and crafts. And that’s just for starters! Plus, we like to keep the parents happy, too, so there will be many wonderful retail vendors selling a great variety of fun merchandise and a variety of health and wellness information and vendors on hand, plus local merchants and non profit organizations will be onsite so adults can also learn more about what’s happening in our town.

St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare will be offering free Rabies vaccinations and are open to residents of any town. The St. Hubert’s Van will be onsite in a parking area adjacent to the event.

The YMCA is also hosting a bone marrow donor testing opportunity during the event. More details to be provided prior to the event.

To top it off and keep the groove going, there will be music provided by DJ Jimmy B and performances and demos by our Springfield Avenue Merchants and well as the very popular Healthy Cooking Contest, this year hosted by the South Mountain YMCA.

Activities for the kids are unlimited with the purchase of an $8.00 wristband (2 for $15.00) and it includes:

  • Pumpkin patch and painting
  • Bounce House
  • Petting Zoo & Pony Rides
  • Other event activities include old-fashioned kids games such as hula hoops, jump ropes and sidewalk chalk games
