It was a gorgeous evening as the Maryland Heights Chamber of Commerce held its inaugural Taste of Maryland Heights at SportPort International. With live music, multiple food venuesmost of whom were from the Maryland Heights areaas well as local vendors of coffee, wine, craft beer and spirits on hand to offer samples, no guest went away hungry or thirsty. A highlight of the evening was the tug-of-war competition between the Maryland Heights Police Department and the Maryland Heights Fire Protection District. The police department won handily and proudly hoisted the trophy until next year.
