Not normally, no, but my uncle makes his own so I might take the kids there to show them how it's done.

We have one near us but we've never gone. I went to one in Quebec once while on a school trip and it was awesome though! They poured freshly made hot syrup into a trough full of snow and it was like eating maple toffee. Soooooo good!

I've wanted to go to the Elmvale one for years now and I still haven't been. It might be something to take Theo to next year.

LOL, guys I think you are letting the word Festival throw you off... She basically means going to the Sugar bush, and she's right, you can't be Canadian without ever having been

We have our own Sugar bush and make our own Maple Syrup, awesome!

Yeah, the one I go to is pretty big, and I've been to a smaller one (usually on different weekend which is good!) and maybe festival isn't quite the right word, but its what the big one is called but the big one is insane, its in the Guinness Book of World Records!
