SPECIAL EVENT | Maple Weekend 

As part of Maple Weekend — a statewide program spotlighting maple producers in New York — the Genesee Country Museum will host its annual Maple Sugar Festival for the next two weekends. The Maple Sugar History Trail provides a window into maple sap collection and processing techniques from the 19th century, complete with a log-built "sugar shack" and a chance to taste "sugar on snow." In the museum proper, exhibits based on both the historic and modern production of maple syrup will include a cooper and tinsmith shop, daily tree tapping shows, and candle-making demonstrations. An all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast will be served every morning from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and maple-flavored cotton candy, fudge, popcorn, and open-hearth cooking will also be available. The Maple Sugar Festival will be open Saturdays and Sundays, March 21 and March 22, and March 28 and March 29, at the Genesee Country Village and Museum, 1410 Flint Hill Road, Mumford. Festival admission is $10; and free for ages 17 and under. Admission to the pancake breakfast is $8.50 for adults; $6.50 for ages 4 to 17; free for ages 3 and under.

For a look into the maple sugaring world along the Pioneer Trail, sweet seekers can attend the 37th Annual Maple Sugaring at the RMSC Cumming Nature Center. Exhibits exploring the science behind the maple production process will be on display, and daily sugaring demonstrations are planned from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. A pancake breakfast will also be served. The 37th Annual Maple Sugaring will be on Saturdays and Sundays, March 21 and March 22, and March 28 and March 29. Cumming Nature Center, 6472 Gulick Road, Naples. 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. $7-$10 (includes pancake meal); $3 per person without the meal.
