Mayfest 2012 in Maplewood: a great day filled with fun and food

By mark-slade May 20, 2012

A beautiful sunny day in Maplewood, so what do you do?

Now that the Spring/Summer Season has launched, it seems like almost every weekend there is some major event and fun thing to do in town.

This weekend is no different with Mayfest. Mayfest takes place on Springfield Avenue, where we have seen such incredible leaps forward in the improvements in appearance, so many great new businesses joining us and some cool new loft apartments added too.

Since they say a picture is like a thousand words (It is believed that the modern use of the phrase stems from an article by Fred R. Barnard in the advertising trade journal Printers’ Ink, promoting the use of images in advertisements that appeared on the sides of streetcars.[1] The December 8, 1921 issue carries an ad entitled, “One Look is Worth A Thousand Words.”), here are my pics from today’s event. And if you

are around, its not too late to enjoy a pulled pork sandwich, a ride for the kids, watch some dance and karate performances or take a look as some classic cars, etc.
