Have a ‘Sweet’ Day in Foxburg – April 28, 2012
Foxburg, PA: Foxburg Business District and Yeany’s Maple bring to you Foxburg Maple Syrup Festival, Saturday April 28, 2012.
Start your day with a hot, steamy stack of fluffy pancakes. Top with butter, watch as it melts, then pour on some fresh, locally made maple syrup. You will find the pancake breakfast in the tent at the Allegheny Grille. All proceeds will go to Foxburg Free Library and at only $5.00 per plate who could pass up the warm delicious sausage, hot coffee and of course, the pancakes.
Yeany’s Maple, located in downtown Marienville, will be providing the Maple Syrup products for the festival. They have a 5, 000 tap operation and produce on average of 1,000 gallons of syrup per year. Dave Yeany tapped over 700 trees at the Riverstone Estate this year and produced the syrup from the sap. Yeany’s has been in business for 9 years and will be selling a variety of maple products including maple candies, maple cream, shaved ice, cotton candy and more.
Ever wonder how the sap from the maple trees can be used in so many different products? You can watch demonstrations on making maple sugar at The Allegheny Grille, maple cream at Divani Chocolatier & Barista and Allegheny RiverStone Center for the Arts (ARCA) will have a maple creamy demonstration at the Red Brick Gallery. A maple creamy is a soft serve ice cream and it will be available for purchase also. A detailed schedule of events will be released as soon as it becomes available.
Allegheny RiverStone Center for the Arts will join in the fun beginning at 11:00am. Lincoln Hall will be open for impromptu blue grass music and Wutlitzer Organ demonstrations on the hour. At 2:00 pm there will be a slide show with commentary, Raymond Rossi-My trip to Everest-“No Maple Syrup for My Pancakes”.
