“Why don’t you drill a hole in yourself and let the sap run out!” goes a famous Groucho Marx insult. Hopefully not to be heard at Hale Farm & Village’s Maple Sugar Festival (but really, why not?).
The festival, supported by Acme Fresh Markets, is a sure sign of spring at Hale Farm & Village, run by the Western Reserve Historical Society, as a preserved mid-19th century rustic community.
It shows old-time maple-sugar tapping (remember, as Hunger Games taught us, that metal tube-thing’s called a “spile”) as well as traditional glassblowing, smithing, weaving and working with farm animals.
Included up until 3pm is a breakfast of pancakes, sausage and juice, covered in the admission rate of $15 for adults, $10 for youths 3-12. Discounts are available for WRHS members.
