Maple Valley Kids’ Fest was fun for all ages

The sun was bright and the fun was endless.

The 2019 Maple Valley Kids’ Festival took place at Lake Wilderness Park on July 13. Kids of all ages were invited to come to the park and enjoy the day. There was a candy canon that shot out thousands of pieces of candy for everyone to grab. There were inflatable toys for kids to enjoy, along with games of all kinds of kids to take part in.
