A sweet trip
Come sate your sweet tooth and learn something too at the 28th Annual Maple Syrup Heritage Festival, where Cunningham Falls State Park personnel will demonstrate the tree-tapping and sap-boiling processes. There will be a video presentation of the history of maple sugar production, children's stories about maple sugaring and a tour through the park on horse-drawn carriages (for a small fee). Also featured will be a display of antique farm machinery and mountain crafts. Best of all, the park's food concession will serve breakfast all day for those wanting to savor fresh maple syrup.
The free festival will take place in the William Houck Area of Cunningham Falls State Park in Frederick County Saturday, Sunday and March 21-22. The demonstrations will run from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. For more information, call 301-271-7574 or 301-663-8687.
