Maple Syrup season is upon us, and with it comes many maple syrup festivals.

There are two maple festivals in Grey Bruce this weekend.

On Saturday, (March 23) Moreston Heritage Village at Grey Roots Museum and Archives is hosting a Maple Sugar Moon festival.

It takes place from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.

You can learn about maple trees from the Grey Sauble Conservation Authority and
try tree tapping, sap boiling and fresh maple snow taffy.

Kiwanis will be selling pancakes (cash only).

You can also sample cedar tea and listen to stories of the very first maple sugar moon with Nikaanaganaa Counselling & Learning Centre.

The Merry Music Makers will be there and visitors can experience a drum circle with M'Wikwedong Native Cultural Resource Centre.

Meanwhile, over this weekend (22 &23) and the next (30&31) Maple Magic is taking place at the Regal Point Elk Farm.

The annual event is put on by the Wiarton Rotary Club.
It's set for March 23, 24, 30, 31 from 9a.m. to 1 p.m.

The Maple Magic experience starts with a wagon ride past fields of elk to the Sugar Shack.
Once there, there are a number of family activities, from a giant hay mountain to a pancake or waffle breakfast. You can take a tour of the maple syrup equipment and other machines including Ontario’s first Electric Steam Evaporator.
