Time Once Again for the Festival of the Maples

It’s that time of the year once again to celebrate the sweetest festival here in Lanark County.

It’s the 2010 Festival of the Maples, and organizers are crossing their fingers that the people of Perth flock to the streets by the thousands once more for a full day of non-stop fun and entertainment filed with children’s games and activities, colorful demonstrations, art displays, and of course, maple syrup enjoyed under the springtime sun.

This year’s pancake breakfast takes place tomorrow, April 24. And because of ongoing renovations at the community centre which was last year’s venue, the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 244 hall will play host to the grand breakfast, which kicks off at 7 to 11 in the morning.

The formal opening ceremonies begin at 10 in the morning on the main stage, which is located along Herriott and Gore Streets. The stage will also serve as the center of activities tomorrow, which start right after the opening ceremonies.

Other things to look forward to tomorrow are car displays, food booths, and creative exhibits.

Indeed, this is one major event you shouldn’t miss. Clear your schedule tomorrow and don’t miss out on the fun!
