Maple Fest at the Randolph School


1 comment

New York, whose state tree is the sugar maple, has a long history of producing the sticky amber syrup. On March 9, the Randolph School in Wappingers Falls will host a tour of the traditional maple-sugaring process that takes place in early spring, from sap to syrup. Samples of the classic maple sugar candy Jack Wax Taffy, also known as "Sugar on Snow," will be available, and there will be live music and storytelling. Scavenger hunts, screen printing, a crafts market, face painting, games, and hikes on Randolph's forested property will round out the day's festivities, and a fundraiser pancake lunch highlighting the weekend's main attraction will offer a sweet finish to the day.
