McCreary is hosting the sweetest event of the season, as this weekend is the Manitoba Maple Syrup festival!

The festival features sugar bush tours, teaching people about maple syrup production, and according to Pam Little, The festival's President, so much more!

"In town, we have taffy on snow, no maple taffy which is a big hit. That's put on by one of our producers, Claude Desrosiers. we have a maple syrup pancake breakfast, which is a fundraiser for our Marlin's baseball, we have a makers market on saturday hosted by Burrows Trail Arts Council, and we have some children and youth activities hosted by Prairie Mountain Health and Dead Ox Trailblazers"

You can also expect to see a wide variety of live music and a delicious maple dessert competition, which will be served to the public after judging at the Maple Tea. 

Little notes that its a great bargain for a weekend too.

"The $5 pass, it's for the full 2 days. if just want to come to the market, it's $3, if you just want to come to the old-time dance its $10. But I mean it's a steal of a deal at $5 for the whole festival"

So if you're looking to sweeten up your weekend plans, you won't want to miss the Annual Maple Syrup Festival!

Tell your friends about the bus coming down the mountain.
