Yesterday I made my annual trek to Elmira, Ontario for the maple syrup festival. It was a sunny but cool Saturday and I enjoyed the festivities. This year marked the 51st occasion that the town of Elmira has hosted the event, the largest one-day maple syrup festival in the entire world. This year, for the first time, I took the sugar bush tour. Participants head out to a sugar shack. They ride part of the way on a school bus and then complete the journey on a hay wagon pulled by a tractor.

There is an antique show at the local hockey arena, the Woolwich Memorial Centre, home of the their Junior B hockey team, Elmira Sugar Kings of the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League. Below are photos of a display of antique cars and an antique fire trucks at the antique show.
