Looking for a fun thing to do over the week-end?
Ice on Whyte festival will be the place to bring the family, friends or even a date.
This year's 10th annual Ice on Whyte Festival takes place January 25 – February 3, 2013 and...we will be there.
The Canadian maple shack will be bringing to you a piece of our heritage, the traditional maple taffy on snow, also known as ¨sugaring off¨ or Cabane a sucre.
What is this you say?
Taffy on snow is the traditional way to enjoy maple syrup. It is how its done if you were ever go to a sugar shack or sugar bush. We boil 100% pure maple syrup and pour it onto fresh snow. The syrup hardens to look like a golden kind of like a caramel texture...pure Canadian bliss.
You use a wooden stick to pick it up from the snow and there it is you can start enjoying.
So this year, no need to travel anywhere, just come enjoy the Ice on Whyte festival right here in your city, and stop by for a taste of our Canadian heritage.
