Shaver’s Creek To Offer Transportation To Maple Harvest Festival

For the first time, Shaver’s Creek is offering transportation to its 33rd annual Maple Harvest Festival and Pancake Breakfast this weekend, March 19 and 20. The bus will leave the HUB at 10:30 a.m. and return at 3:30 p.m. Tickets must be bought ahead of time at 814-863-2000 and they cost $5 per person for ages 12 and older. The festival and all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast costs $5 for ages 12 and older and $3 for ages 6-11 for members; it’s $10 and $6, respectively, for non-members.

Shaver’s Creek has hosted the Maple Harvest Festival since 1984 to have students teach people about the maple sugaring process. The group teaching includes 30 Penn State students who will demonstrate maple sugaring techniques and instruct how to identify and tap sugar maple trees. Also, story-telling, live birds of prey, reptile shows, and all-you-can-eat pancakes and maple syrup will be provided.

The students, including Ben Bender — a junior recreation, park, and tourism management major — will portray 1800s pioneers and maple syrup collectors. “We’re able to give visitors a sense of how technology has evolved and the challenges people have experienced during the course of history,” Bender said.

So if you’re looking for an educational and fun field trip this weekend, don’t hesitate to buy your ticket.
