State celebrating maple syrup cropApril 28,2013
ST. ALBANS — Vermont is celebrating its signature crop at the maple festival in St. Albans.
The 47th annual event started Friday and runs through today with a parade, pancake breakfast, maple cooking demonstrations, music and the annual sap run from Swanton to St. Albans.
There is also a maple contest, talent show, antiques, exhibits, and a craft and specialty foods show.
Vermont is the nation’s largest producer of maple syrup. The state produced more than 1 million gallons in 2011, but less in 2012 because warmer weather cut the season short.MORE IN This Just InThe National Retail Federation, based in Washington, D.C., recently named Rep.Peter Welch, D-Vt.
