Maple Harvest Festival Approaches 30th Anniversary at Shaver's Creek
For nearly 30 years, Shaver's Creek Environmental Center has heralded winter's demise with something sweet.
The annual Maple Harvest Festival and Pancake Breakfast, started in 1984, has since become a springtime staple in the State College area. It'll return from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at the environmental center, in Barree Township, Huntingdon County.
Attractions include demonstrations of the maple-sap-extraction and syrup-making processes; live music and storytelling; reptile shows; and all-you-can-eat pancake breakfasts.
Prices for non-members of the environmental center are $10 for those age 12 and older and $6 for those between the ages of 6 and 11. For members, prices are $5 for those age 12 and older and $3 for those between the ages of 6 and 11. Children age 5 and younger will be admitted free of charge.
