This family friendly annual event will include hands-on participation in tapping a tree, collecting sap buckets , and boiling sap down to amber colored syrup. The sap is already running at this point, Feb. 23, so we hope to have some syrup from the site for sampling. We will have syrup from local sugar houses for sale. Our sugar house have a wood burning evaporator going full tilt.  In the Victorian Kitchen, with our newly restored Crawford kitchen stove, we will have much food for purchase including choices flavored with maple syrup as well as Irish stew and soda bread in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day. We plan on a horse drawn sled or carriage depending on snow conditions; this will be $5 per ride. We will have an EGG HUNT around the museum village campus with prizes for all entrees.
