MAPLEFEST in Hopkins Forest this Saturday!

Posted Monday March 6 by Andrew Jones

Come out and celebrate the maple sugaring season in Hopkins Forest this Saturday, March 11th from 11:00-2:00. Visit a working sugar house; observe the finishing and bottling of the final product; try your hand at tapping a tree and gathering sap; and taste homemade syrup on pancakes and “sugar on snow”. In addition, there will be demonstrations of old-time evaporating methods going back to the pre-colonial era, a taste test, videos and more. Van rides will be available from Paresky (Park Street).
