One of the largest events in Sharon this summer is responsible for a financial boost to area businesses.

The WaterFire World Fire event drew people from all across the Valley to downtown Sharon Saturday night and many of the businesses reaped the benefits of the large crowd.

Quaker Steak and Lube manager Ben Fustos said they saw slightly more customers last night compared to the previous Waterfire event held last month. He said it’s a great benefit to the area.

“Doing this will benefit everybody in downtown Sharon. The small businesses that are trying to get going and the businesses that are already going,” said Fustos. “It helps them by bringing more employee staff on. It’s helps the economy with staffing people, building new businesses, getting new businesses into the area.”

Saturday’s Waterfire event was the second in a series of events planned through October.
