On the third Saturday of October, the grand finale day of the 8-day festival begins with the largest parade in Southwest Missouri. The parade is the festival's key event and starts promptly at 9 a.m. on the Carthage Historic Square and ends at approximately noon at the Carthage Junior High School.   Numerous activities are scheduled throughout the day to entertain both the young and the young at heart. These events include an arts & crafts festival, petting zoo, auto show, dog show, food vendors, and live entertainment. 

The week preceding the one-day finale is filled with a variety of activities including a family fun walk, beauty pageants, baby contest, and lip-sync competition.  Currently in its 43rd year, the Maple Leaf Festival offers family-style fun combined with a home-town atmosphere.
