The Genesee Country Village and Museum will hold a Maple Sugar Festival from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on two weekends, March 18, 19, 25 and 26, at 1410 Flint Hill Road, Mumford, N.Y.

This event offers a chance to learn about the tools and techniques that 19th century settlers used to collect sap and boil it down into sugar.

Hike through the recently expanded sugarbush too see trees tapped with modern tubing and stop at stations to see how collecting sap has changed over time.

Other activities include 19th century dishes made with maple sugar, demonstrations of trees being tapped, candle-making demonstrations and a maple baking contest.

Admission is $10 for adults and free for children under the age of 18 and museum members.

A pancake breakfast running from 9 a.m.to 1 p.m. is $9 for adults, $7 for youth ages two to 10 and free for children ages one and younger.
