Summer is HERE in Maplewood + South Orange, NJ! Memorial Day Weekend marks the unofficial start of summer - personally one of my favorite times of the year. This year we were lucky to have one of the best MDW yet - beautiful blue skies! Bright sunshine! It wasn’t too cool or rainy - which is kind of unusual these days. We had the opening of the Maplewood Pool, the South Orange pool, and the infamous Duck Race. The duck race raises money for the YMCA in Maplewood, NJ - hundreds of families came out to cheer on rubber ducks that travel through our picturesque Memorial Park stream. It’s an iconic and timeless gathering that puts a smile on everyone’s face. Here’s to an amazing summer -more sunshine, more community, more FUN.
