Westfield, hometown of Addams Family creator Charles Addams, is celebrating his legacy with a three-day Addams Family festival called Addamsfest.

Local businesses are spearheading the effort with windows covered in spooky Addams Family-themed designs painted by local artists.

Additionally, there will be pumpkin carvings, movie showings, and other family friendly activities from Friday through Sunday.
