Maple Leaf events scheduled, annual parade cancelled

The 2019 Maple Leaf Royalty: Taylor Jones, Queen Samantha Benhumea, and Emily Egger.

The event line up for Maple Leaf Festival in October has been announced.

Organizers have more than a dozen shows, contests, and a ball planned for the annual celebration from Oct. 1 through Oct. 24. Maple Leaf starts with exhibits at Powers Museum and artCentral and leads to the annual queen contest, chili cook-off, brats on the square and much more.

While there’s no parade for 2020, that morning will see a long list of vendors and festival food around the Historic Carthage Square. The 2020 Maple Leaf Theme is “Fall into Carthage.”
