Hooray, it’s coming — Merck’s Maple Celebration and Pancake Breakfast!
It’s all kinds of fun, with sugaring demonstrations, games for the kids, silent auction, wagon rides, and — of course — breakfast (pancakes laced with the best maple syrup in the universe, eggs, Merck-produced breakfast sausage, coffee and orange juice). Don’t sleep in this weekend, you don’t want to miss a morsel! Breakfast is served from 9am to 2pm each day. Admission is $10 for teens and adults, $5 for children aged 5-12, free younger than 5. This event is part of Vermont’s Maple Open House Weekend.
