In April, the streets outside Mondawmin Mall was the site where the riots started. In the wake of the unrest, the mall continues to be a transit hub and community gathering point. This weekend, city leaders are inviting people out for a family festival at the mall.
From 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. Saturday, the Mondawmin Festival aims to link up residents with services and their leaders. From the city’s press release:
Resources will include healing circles, Baltimore Police Department neighborhood engagement, job training and placement, and energy, water bill and housing assistance. Residents will also have an opportunity to share their thoughts about the impact of the recent civil unrest and community needs in an interactive mural.
Live music and free food will also be among the offerings, and we also hear a fun wagon will be onhand. The National Guard will even be back in town, but this time they’re just running an obstacle course.
