Maple syrup, pancake breakfast and more during Maple Weekend

 

Five-Reasons-Maple-Poster-words-reducedSpring is in the air and everyone wants to be outdoors. Well, break free from your house and go around and sample what Central New York has to offer with Maple Weekend. It takes place Saturday and Sunday, March 21 & 22; and Saturday and Sunday, March 28 & 29 throughout the area. The New York State Maple Producers Association invites families to learn all about the production of maple syrup and other related products.  Their goal during Maple Weekend is to share the taste of real mouth-watering maple syrup with you.  Maple producers will demonstrate how to make syrup – whether it’s simply boiling the sap over an open fire or running it through highly scientific equipment – the results always taste great. Here is a guide to help you maneuver your weekend filled with maple goodness.
