Elmira Maple Syrup Festival Part 2

Happy April 1st! or April Fools day :)
Jackie, over at Musings from Jacran Cottage....waving...."Hi Jackie" http://jacrancottage.blogspot.com/ was at the festival too! We didn`t run into each other but it`s funny because I was wondering if she would be there. She has a link to the festival at her blog. People come from all over the world for this huge little event here in Canada.
Someone went to a lot of work making these bird houses.....

The trail of people goes down the street a long way......

There was even log sawing....


Mmmmmmmmm, home made fudge with samples to try..........

More food....

Hand made teddy bears.....

Elephant Ears are a sweet pastry but now they even have pizza ones!

Garden Gnome overload......

Giant Pickles on a stick the size of a typical cucumber!


A balloon clown for the kiddies.....

More crafts.....

And warm sheep skins.....

Despite the cloudy and chilly day, the rain held off and we had a nice time.
We stopped by St. Jacobs on our way home and into the Discount Bookstore to have a browse. I found a great decorating ideas book for under $10. I did have a picture of the village but it`s gone missing somehow LOL
Hope you enjoyed a peek at the Festival :)

Wow -- this looks like fun. Over here in England Maple syrup isn't well known. I grew up in Michigan and I remember going out to see maple trees being tapped and so forth.

Happy April. I hope Spring starts bursting forth soon.

I love seeing all the stalls and the small cultural differences between nations (Elephant ears, for one!) - it all looks so much fun. I'm glad you had a fab time - that is one event I'd love to go to.

The maple syrup festival looks like a lot of fun, I love maple syrup on pancakes even though I'm English. I've been to the US quite a few times though:)

Thanks for taking us along Tea. It's been many years since I visited Elmira. I'd forgotten how much there is to see. I think I will plan a visit for the warmer weather, it is not too far from us.
I love the baby lambs..!
