Have you ever wondered how to make Maple syrup?
Great news! This weekend, the Maple Syrup Festival will be continuing to showcase the process of how Maple syrup is made in the beautiful Hueston Woods State Park. Come alone or bring the family. Either way there will be a pancake feed on Saturday and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. ($5 for 10 and younger and $6 adults). Afterwards, enjoy a hayride or take a tour that will show you the steps to making maple syrup with a taste test at the end.
