This year we will be participating in an awesome winter festival. Carved Ice sculptures, skating fun for the whole family. Lots and lots of activities for kids. All of this right downtown.
Of course we will have out tent up, because winter carnival in Canada means MAPLE SYRUP ON SNOW also know as maple taffy, sugaring off, or as the french call it '' LA TIRE ''.
The sugar shack or Cabane a sucre is where maple syrup is harvested as maple sap and boiled to be transformed into maple syrup, sugar or candy. Maple syrup is natural because the only transformation process from the tree sap to the syrup is boiling.
The tradition at the sugar shack is to have maple taffy on snow. The maple syrup is boiled and poured on snow, where its hardens into a caramel like texture. You pick it up with a stick and VOILÀ....delicious maple taffy on snow.
The Canadian maple shack will be on site January SAT 26-SUN 27 and February SAT 2-SUN 3
We will be serving maple cotton candy from 10 am to 8 pm.
MAPLE TAFFY ON SNOW will be served three times daily NOON-3PM-6PM
You can purchase your ticket at the tent all day.
Cant wait to see you there!!!!
