What a beautiful Saturday afternoon to spend in Kirkwood during the neighborhood’s annual Spring Fling on May 16. Artist booths surrounded Bessie Branham Park as music echoed across the green, the smell of food wafted through the airĀ and people enjoyed themselves on a sunny day.

Scenes from Saturday’s festivities …
