The rain stopped and, despite cool temperatures, crowds filed into the Saugeen Bluffs where the annual Maple Syrup Festival is being held.

Hosted by the Saugeen Valley Conservation Authority (SVCA), the event is the largest maple syrup festival in Grey and Bruce Counties.

It is an opportunity for visitors to see early pioneer and 'coeurs de bois'  demonstrations of the peoples that opened up Bruce County, enjoy entertainment and delicious treats that include the pancake breakfast and cooking bannock over an open fire.
