Shepherd Maple Festival Celebrates 50 Years

The Fiftieth annual Maple Festival in Shepherd, Michigan, takes place 25, 26, and 27 April. (Every 50th pancake dinner will be free!) "Never did we dream back in 1958 when we made about 100 gallons of maple syrup and served a few hundred meals at our first one-day festival that we would grow to processing 12,000 meals at a three-day festival," notes the information on the festival.

The 2008 schedule of events includes not only the pancakes, but museum tours, sugar bush visits, a parade, pony rides, tractor pulls, amusement rides and an arts & crafts show.
