Local moving and storage company Harrington Moving & Storage participated in the 2012 Maplewood MayFest on Springfield Avenue Event that was held on May 20.
The smells of kettle corn and broiled chicken filled the air on May 20 as local residents and visitors flocked to the 11th Annual Maplewood MayFest on Springfield Avenue Event. The event was presented by Walgreens and was sponsored by many local businesses including Harrington Moving & Storage, a New-Jersey moving company.
The festival, hosted by Springfield Avenue Partnership, is held every year on Springfield Avenue to bring visitors to the district so they become familiar with the area’s wide range of activities.
“The 11th annual street festival serves to better inform locals and visitors of the district’s shopping, dining and service opportunities,” event organizers said. “The event also gives our district businesses an opportunity to introduce themselves to the public.”
This is the first MayFest event Harrington Moving sponsored. Throughout the event Harrington Movers maintained a booth, handed out free balloons and displayed one of their colossal moving trucks.
“Our movers had a great time, we interacted with locals and visitors, exhibited our truck and had fun,” said Jeff Harrington, owner and founder of Harrington Moving & Storage.
Harrington was one out of many local businesses who offered to sponsor the event and participate in the street festival. Festival organizers estimated the fair attracted between 4,000-to-5,000 visitors.
“It was a great success, the music was good, there was plenty of food and attractions to keep the fair going,” Harrington said.
The 11th Annual MayFest event included a petting zoo with four ponies to ride, a kiddie train, inflatable rides, a balloon animal maker and plenty of other enjoyable activities for children. Furthermore, the event displayed more than 100 vendors, artists, crafters and civic associations.
“We will definitely return to the fair next year, the MayFest event is considered Maplewood’s most anticipated community events,” Harrington said. “We always strive to reach out and participate in the community.”
