The Plaza has been undergoing construction to create a new entranceway at the corner of MacArthur Place and East MacArthur Boulevard, which would allow more pedestrian traffic into the center. “We hope that this new entrance makes it easier for people who live and work near MacArthur Plaza to come and enjoy what we offer,” said David Fried, owner. “We hope that the community sees this entranceway as an invitation to come to the Plaza and join in our events, dine in our restaurants, and recognize us as part of the community.”

One thought on “Free Family Fun Day at MacArthur Plaza, on Saturday”
  1. I was looking for someone to do a tax extension for me but have had no luck. I was scheduled for surgery the 28th and it was canceled due to health problems at the last moment. I have been very busy since I am a lone with that and other things. I only have until Friday to find out who can do a tax extension for me. Margaret A. Flangan (714) 486-3181 pego_3@yahoo.com
