Harrow Open Streets highlights local businesses, supports shopping locally

by Sylene Argent

The Harrow & Colchester South Chamber of Commerce took advantage of the clear fall weather on Friday evening to host a Harrow Open Streets event.

  King Street was closed down to vehicular traffic to invite patrons to enjoy an event that showcased the accessibility and aesthetic improvements made during the Town of Essex’s streetscape project, brought attention to its existing businesses and featured vendors, food trucks, and live music entertainment.

The event offered a family-friendly, community party atmosphere.

  Harrow & Colchester South Chamber of Commerce hosts the event as a way for families and individuals to enjoy an evening in downtown Harrow, while supporting its businesses.

  The event followed the successful summer version of the Harrow Open Streets party that was held in June.

  According to, a Chamber of Commerce is a form of business network with a goal to further the interests of businesses. Business owners in towns and cities form these local societies to advocate on behalf of the business community.
