“La Cabane Panache et Bois Rond is the guiding beacon for celebrating sugaring time like nowhere else,” reads the event’s website. “Over 100,000 hungry lumberjacks are expected at the biggest and free-est maple festival in Quebec to enjoy a first big breath of springtime air.”
The traditional event will feature square dancing, log-throwing, two-man saws, six francophone concerts, and of course a maple syrup feast.
We’re talking about maple taffy, sugar pie, pancakes with syrup, and even maple cocktails.
Get ready to enter a sugar coma.
