Last Saturday afternoon, Maplewood Square and the surrounding streets were closed off for Maplewood Fest. This old-time block party format was the perfect jump start for the community. Jugglers, bands, magicians, superheroes, and a variety of wares to shop and trinkets to buy made Maplewood Fest a huge success.
