It's a dismal, drizzly day in South Western Ontario as Spring goes out with a soggy wet splot. Still, there is something to look forward to this weekend beside the promised sun and better temps. This weekend it's the Elmira Maple Syrup Festival; the wolds largest single day festival honouring the life blood of the Canadian Sugar Maple. The first festival was in 1965 so this year is the 52nd annual festival. Tourists come from around the world to tour the sugar bush, observe the sugaring off process and taste the sweet results drizzled over pancakes made on site and so much more. Gallons of the sweet treat will be served up and gallons more sold for sugar aficionados to take home. If you are in the area best show up early to get a parking spot.
