Thanks to the participants who helped make Mac-Grove Fest on September 9th a huge success!

We had fun listening to great music, enjoying food and treats from our food trucks, and getting to know our neighbors. Highlights of the day include the eco-scavenger hunt, Water Barand visits from the Saint Paul Fire and Police departments.

A special thanks to our many volunteers and Saint Paul Parks and Recreation Staff who worked behind the scenes to make sure everything ran smoothly during the event.
