I grew up in Havertown PA and recently they have been throwing an event called Haverford Township Day. They close off most of Darby Rd, the main drag through town and some of Brookline Blvd and some other side streets to hold a festival for the residents of Havertown and our close and distant neighbors. They have a variety of vendors selling crafts and other goods. There were food stands selling goodies like funnel cake and pizza, Live music and bouncy rides for the kids to play in, and so many people! It was a great turnout and everyone was so friendly. For a group of probably 20,000 people it was quite orderly and well, neighborly. I guess Havertown does still have that small hometown appeal after all these years away.
