“Roses are red, violets are purple,
Sugar is sweet, and so is maple surple.”
– Roger Miller, singer, song writer

Got a hankerin’ for some flap-jacks? (That’s pancakes, for you millenials). They don’t taste any better’n when theyah drenched in pyooah Maine maple syrup, deah! And, that’s what’s bein’ celebrated all over Maine this Sunday, top to bottom from Eagle Lake to Wells.

Bring the whole family for wicked fun at any of 85 locations as the Maine Maple Producers Association presents its annual tradition, Maine Maple Sunday.

Most sugarhouses offer free maple syrup samples and demonstrations on how pure Maine maple syrup is made. Many farms offer games, activities, treats, sugarbush tours, music, and so much more.See Channel 5 News sneak preview

Maine Maple Sunday is always the fourth Sunday in March although some sugarhouses are offering events for both Saturday and Sunday.

Check out the map. More’n likely, there’s a sugar house open-house near you!

Not keen on syrup? How about paper – Maine’s other famous commodity. You can still catch the drama of Papermaker, which runs through April 2 at the Penobscot Theater in downtown Bangor. Billed as “a revealing drama about family, loyalty, and the dignity and tragedy of mill-town life,” the play is based on Maine writer Monica Wood’s recently published novel of the same name.
