Maple Sugaring Season Is Upon Us!
A long held tradition, Maple Sugaring in Maine always takes place on the 4th Sunday of March! This years it falls on Easter, good for some who may have a long weekend or maybe even a week off! What is this traditional all about? Basically, it is the process of turning all the sap collected over the last several weeks from our Maple trees into the delicious maple syrup so popular in our region! The sap is boiled down in a sugar house to produce the syrup. More on the process can be found on Wikipedia through this link, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maple_syrup. While these events are taking place thoughout the region, we have one of the best right down the street at Maine Gold in Rockland! Events for the day include an Easter Egg Hunt, the making of maple sugar in the new sugar house, a fantastic brunch, and shopping discounts. Visit the webpage, Maine Gold Maple Sunday, for more information and to search other sugaring events that weekend! What a great family event for all to enjoy!
