It's the Maple Syrup festival at Westfield Heritage Village! The whole village is alive with maple activities. There are sap collection buckets hanging around the site. The sap is boiled down at the sugar shack and in the Inn, where historical pioneer methods are demonstrated. As well, the interpreters are in action. Last weekend they were cooking griddle cake scones and maple cookies. I was demonstrating as well, but wearing civies since I was parked just outside the gates. My helper and I were making maple taffy. How great is it when your job for the day is to make candy and hand out free samples? It's a totally awesome way to spend a day!
