Kingston – Maple Madness starts this weekend at Little Cataraqui Creek Conservation Area. Maple Madness runs over the March Break, Monday, March 13 to Friday, March 17 and also the weekends of March 11 and 12, March 18 and 19, March 25 and 26 as well as April 1 and 2, with the sugar bush open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.
Take a tractor-drawn wagon back to the sugar bush to see how maple syrup was made by the early settlers of the region and also how it’s made today. Enjoy delicious pancakes with maple syrup and even purchase some maple syrup or maple sugar to take home.
Check out some of the special activities taking place during Maple Madness, including puppet shows, tree tapping demonstrations, First Nations Display, the annual Conservation Foundation bake sale March 18 and ‘Old Tyme Sugar Bush Chores.’ With so much to do, you will want to visit the sugar bush more than once.
