Shepherd Maple Syrup Festival on Tap This Weekend

The Maple Syrup Festival in Shepherd will be taking place this upcoming weekend.

The festival will be a little more condensed this year to keep safety a priority. Most activities will be outside and there will be a pancake drive-thru so people don’t have to go into the school. although the carnival wont be happening they still plan on the car show, parades and more.

Festival chairman Pete Alexander says residents are happy and ready for the festival.

“The residents are happy and I think people are just ready to get out and do something this year,” he said. “We are not going to have a carnival unfortunately but it’s still a few things to do and like I say get out and enjoy it.”

Alexander says there will be extra wash stations throughout the city.
