Maple syrup to start flowing this spring

January 2, 2019 by  

The Annual Maple Syrup Festival near Dayton offers attendees the opportunity enjoy a tasty pancake breakfast smothered in authentic maple syrup. The breakfast will be held at the Hueston Woods Lodge.

Following the breakfast, guests will move over to the Pioneer Homestead for a tour of the maple syrup production facility. Part of the tour will be done with a hayride, and it will teach visitors each step of the process, including tapping, boiling and ultimately packaging. Needless to say, tasting is a major part of the fun too.

The Big Woods, a State Nature Preserve, is nearby and visitors are invited to hike through the region, learning about the natural history found in the beautiful forests. The Nature Center is open until 4:30 pm, allowing ample time for exploration and also touring habitat exhibits of birds, wildcats, and reptiles.

Often, a local print shop is contacted to handle poster printing for events of this nature. The colorful posters can be made in any size and can be mounted on walls, fencing, windows, or placed on easels to generate interest.

The Annual Maple Syrup Festival will be held March 2 and 3 from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm at the Hueston Woods Pioneer Farm on Brown Rd. More information about the event, along with vendor and sponsor packages, may be found on the event website.
