It’s not really springtime until you’re sugar shacking.

And guess what? You can have it.

There’s also horse-drawn sleighs, wagons, and an all-you-can-eat sugaring-off feast.

When: From now until April 22
Time: 10 am – 7:30 pm
Where: 300, Chemin St-Georges, Rigaud
Price:$14 – $34, available online
