11:00 am – 3:00 pm
Join us for The Health & HarvestFest on Springfield Avenue, our annual celebration of Fall on Springfield Avenue. This year we are joining with the Maplewood Loves Wellness Health Fair and creating one wonderful family event which will offer something for every member of your family to enjoy. There’s lots of great things for the kids to do and just as much for the parents.
For the kids, there’s pumpkin painting, a bounce house, pony rides, face painting, glitter tattoos, and crafts. And that’s just for starters! Plus, we like to keep the parents happy, too, so there will be many wonderful retail vendors selling a great variety of fun merchandise health and wellness information and vendors, plus local merchants and non profit companies will be on site so adults can also learn more about what’s happening in our town.
To top it off and keep the groove going, there will be live local bands playing and performances and demos by our Springfield Avenue Merchants and well as the very popular Healthy Cooking Contest at Noon. The Gazebo performance schedule is as follows:
