Thousands of people from across the region came to LaGrande Park Sunday, July 9, for the first annual Fan Jam music festival in Fanwood. Five live bands, a classic car show, more than a dozen food trucks and local and regional vendors and exhibitors celebrated summer on a perfect day in the park. Staged by the Greater Westfield Area Chamber of Commerce, the daylong festival promises to be a yearly tradition, judging by the turnout and the good times being had by all. Thanks to the Fanwood Police Department for keeping and eye on everyone and the Fanwood Rescue Squad for being on hand for safety and ambulance tours. Squad members who volunteered for the event were Capt. Nancy Mustachio, EMTs Tom Kranz, Brian Downing, Joan Lozowski and first responder Adrian McDonald.
