Maple Festival Starts Today In Coudersport

Maple Festival Highlights

Friday kicks off the Maple Festival in downtown Coudersport. I really look forward to it and have since I was a kid. You don't even have to be near the Courthouse Square to start enjoing the festival- the maple sugar smell fills the area. This is due to the Maple Syrup demonstration at the "Sugar Shack".

The Potter-Tioga Maple Producers set up thier giant tent today. Tommarrow it will be filled with syrups and candy. Festival-goers can also get Maple Cotton-Candy and Maple Milkshakes. Then there is "food alley" where you can get all the famous festival treats from the blooming onion to the coveted funnel cake.

As a kid, going to the Maple Festival was part of the springtime routine, ususally follows leak digging and fishing season. Which after writing that makes sense, because I probably needed something sweet after the savory dishes of leaks and fish.

But who am I kidding, the real reason I was excited because the Maple Festival was also the first opportunity to get in some quality time with the "Merry-Mixer" and "The Giant Slide" and all of the other awesome rides and games that are at the Maple Festival.

Now in my older years, I look at the Maple Festival in a new light, a chance to support the local maple producers, see friends who have been hibernating, and see what our great local vendors have to offer.

I'll be on the square all weekend handing out visitor information on Potter County, If by chance, I'm not there I'll be in line for my yearly maple milkshake.

I thought "leek" as in wild onion, was spelled "leek" not "leaky" as in leaky faucet.
