On Saturday December 8th I got to participate in an event in downtown Escondido that marked the beginning of a new life for Maple Street Plaza. This courtyard used to be a street… and then the decision was made to turn it into a plaza that could be used for community events, etc.
Scroll through the pics and you’ll see the setup for our tables (shared with my creative friends Sandy Mune and Carol Murphy)… and you’ll also see the hard work put into the event by Escondido Events. They found local businesses / sponsors to offer free holidays activities for kids and families … like a free hay ride, cookie decorating, holiday stories with the local librarian, crafty workshops, etc
Dozens of vendors were also set up to sell holiday gifts, decor, clothing, jewelry, etc.
Throughout the day we enjoyed live musical performances and watched family after family make new memories together. We’re looking forward to more and more fun community events in Maple Street Plaza…
