Maple Syrup Festival Starts Today
John R. Park Homestead invites you to the “Maple Syrup Festival – First Taste of Spring” from noon to 4pm today. Curator, Janet Cobban says, ‘This is the only place in Essex County that you can see maple syrup being made in the pioneer way. Many special activities are planned so that the public can participate in this exciting spring ritual.’ See the trees tapped and learn how maple sap is transformed into maple syrup and other sweet products. Even make your own taffy in the snow! Local maple syrup from Crepe Temptations in Cottam will be available for purchase.
The Homestead is located at 915 County Road 50, east of Colchester on Lake Erie.
