A Self-Guided Tour of Enchantment through Historic Downtown Maplewood

The 8th Annual Let Them Eat Art returns on Friday, July 12th, 2013 from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Maplewood's whimsical tribute to Bastille Day is somewhere between Mardi Gras and the Christmas Tree walk. A self-guided tour through historic downtown Maplewood and offering something for everyone.

NOTE: Artists, please contact Cultural Festivals to apply for this event.

Here is what we are planning:


* Night of a thousand cupcakes! Taking "Let them eat cake" to a new level, we will be giving away one thousand cupcakes.

* Live demonstrations by regional artists and artisans

* Live music with headliner the Gene Dobbs Bradford Blues

* Experience and St. Louis favorite Gumbohead.

* Great food and drink specials by Maplewood’s award-winning restaurants including wine tastings and chocolate tastings!

* Dream interpretation by Dream Seekers

* Belly Dancing by Exotic Rhythms

* Hoop Dance performances by the St. Louis Hoop Club

* Tarot Card Reading and Henna Painting at Mystic Valley, now in downtown Maplewood!

 

Kids’ activities including: Mad Science, Impish Grin Face Painting, Claire the Clown, Top Spinning with Hi Tadah, TKO DJ’s and a fire shooting ice cream truck.
PLUS: Surprises!


We will meet at Acreo (7266 Manchester Road) the corner of Manchester and Southwest. There should be parking at Schlafly or on the streets around there. We will meet at 5:45 and start walking around at 6:00 pm. We do not need to stick together as this is just a self-directed walking tour of the area.
