The Crab is one of many inflatables at the Veterans Day Holiday JUMP.

The Westfield Area YMCA is hosting two Holiday JUMP sessions on Nov. 11 at the Main Y Facility located at 220 Clark St. in Westfield. Open to the community, this event is perfect for families with children ages 8 and younger. The Holiday JUMP features three huge inflatables and an arts and crafts station. Two sessions will be offered: 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Space is limited, and registration for each session closes when maximum capacity is reached. Register in person at the Main Y Welcome Center or online at

Proceeds benefit the Annual Support Campaign which ensures that no one experiencing a bona fide financial hardship that lives or works in Westfield, Cranford, Garwood or Mountainside is turned away for inability to pay.  The majority of awards enable participation in the Y’s early learning, school age and summer day camp programs. Contact the Welcome Center at 908-301-YMCA (9622) for more information.
