Yes, it’s Maple Leaf Festival time again.

As usual, the Saturday and Sunday events are always the favorites, especially the parade and the booths – food, arts and crafts and plenty of them. But the 51st edition of the festival even has a new start with a Scholarship Pageant kicking everything off at 7 p.m. Friday at Baldwin Junior High School.

“I am looking forward to this year’s Maple Leaf Festival – a start of the next 50 years,” said Donna Curran, Maple Leaf committee chair.

Quick, men, plaster the streets with 'no parking' signs!
