Don’t forget – the Hebron Maple Fest is this weekend (March 16 and 17), moved to a new date because of the snow on the ground last weekend.
Events are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Come prepared to eat… a lot.
The festival has its own web site – http://hebronmaplefest.com – with a downloadable (in PDF format) schedule of events.
This year’s festival includes the first-ever Farm Tractor Parade, which begins at Ted’s Supermarket on Main Street (Route 66) where the tractors will be on display beginning at 11:30 a.m. Antique and working tractors will parade through the center of town beginning at 1:30 p.m.
Questions about the parade? Contact Kevin McDonnel at email@example.com or 860-228-0578 or Marc Baribault at 860-228-0678 or firstname.lastname@example.org
There’s also a great quilt show (it’s a fundraiser, so there’s a donation requested) from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. both days, at the Old Town Hall – more than 100 quilts will be on display.
The Hebron Historical Society is also giving tours of several interesting buildings, including the Gull School House, the Burrows Hill School House and the Old Town Pound.
One of the biggest attractions of the weekend is the self-guided tour of the local sugar houses. (See guide for participating locations).
