Celebrate all things maple syrup this March at Storrowton Village’s free annual Maple Syrup Harvest Day.
Visitors can watch how to tap a tree and boil sap with historian Dennis Picard at the Gilbert Farmhouse, watch 19th-century open-hearth maple syrup recipes or go on docent-led tours.
“Our Maple Harvest Day event is a fundraiser for the educational programs at the Village and we are happy to be back this year with the same fun activities, plus a few new offerings to add to the excitement,” director of Storrowton Village Museum Jessica K. Fontaine in a news release.
Special events for the day include a pancake breakfast from 10 a.m. to noon for $5, and horse-drawn wagon rides from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for $8 per ride.
