Maple Syrup Festival in Wakarusa


Friday marks the beginning of Wakarusa's 44th annual Maple Syrup festival!

But this community event is much more than just maple syrup!

It features a parade, free entertainment and free museum tours...

And you'll also find contests for all ages, including the crowing of the festival queen.

Deb Shively, who helps organize the event, says it's not possible without the help of volunteers and local sponsors.

Executive secretary of Wakarusa Chamber of Commerce Deb Shively said,"We have over 50 sponsors of local business' and we can't do it without them. It's just a privilege to offer a free family event that can be enjoyed by so many."

The festival runs through Saturday evening.
