FIRST COUNTY BANK presents MAPLE SUGAR FESTIVAL WEEKEND SATURDAY, MARCH 7 & SUNDAY, MARCH 8, 2015 11 AM to 3 PM.
Celebrate the sweetness of the maple sugaring season as this annual family favorite returns to the Stamford Museum & Nature Center. Visit the little red sugarhouse on Heckscher Farm and see firsthand how sap is turned into maple syrup. Witness how trees are tapped, see how sap is collected, make a maple-themed craft, go on a scavenger hunt, have your face painted, and sing and dance to live music with Jay and Ray. Additionally, Heckscher WILD!, a new, interactive live exotic animal exhibit on Heckscher Farm, will celebrate its grand opening.
On Saturday, watch teen chefs create delicious dishes using SM&NC maple syrup and vote for your favorite in the First County Bank Teen Chefs Challenge from 11:30 am – 1:30 pm.
