Included in the festivities will be a tooth-melting amount of maple syrup taffy, outdoor activities, and even a maple-inspired cocktail bar for the adults in attendance.

The event will run for three days from March 22 to 24, making for the perfect way to kick spring off — in style.

Attending will be able to partake in a dog sleigh display, wagons rides, a skating party, an ice-chipping station, a beavertail contest, and enjoy the warmth of a bonfire while listening to live music.

Outdoor activities will include snowshoe tours, fat biking, mountain yoga, and stargazing.

Participants can attend any (or all) of the scheduled activities, or simply sit back and enjoy the sound of a fiddler and the smell of the s’mores bar.

The various outings can be reserved online and require a fee to attend, while much of the three-day event can be enjoyed for free, including the Winter Carnival, live music, bonfire, browsing the artisan market, and taking part in the Winter Olympics.

The stargazing snowshoe tour costs $75 per person (for adults), while mountain yoga will cost $15 per person.
