Every spring we drive a little north for a maple syrup festival. It’s great! All-you-can-eat pancakes served by cute little Boy Scouts, locally tapped maple syrup, pony rides, historical reenactments, and live music. Lots of good fun. The weather can be erratic in this region in April, so over the years, we’ve had to be ready for snow, freezing rain, drizzle, or sun. There is almost always mud. This year was chilly but partly sunny. We needed to be bundled, but we had no trouble enjoying ourselves.
