CAMPBELLVILLE – The Olympics are returning to Mountsberg again this year, the Flapjack Olympics that is. The only competition where having fun is the gold medal achievement. The Flapjack Olympics will take place this Sunday, March 3 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Join other syrup-time athletes and compete in these traditional or maybe not so traditional sugar bush events. There is something for kids of all ages and their families. Prizes will be awarded for exceptional performances.

The Flapjack Olympics are part of the opening weekend of Maple Towne at Mountsberg. While you’re here be sure to enjoy the horse-drawn Sugar Bush Express tour, historical demonstrations and of course build up your strength with a plate of Flapjacks covered in pure maple syrup.

Conservation Halton’s (CH) Maple Syrup time begins this Saturday, March 2 and continues until Sunday, April 7 (weekends, March Break and holidays). Visitors are welcome to the working sugar bush at Maple Towne and Crawford Lake Conservation Area presents the Sweetwater Season.

Regular park admission fees apply and the festivities are free for children age 4 years and under. Best of all, you can visit two parks for the price of one, as admission to one park may be used at any other CH park (except Glen Eden) when visiting the same day. CH annual members only need to show their pass for admission. For more information on all CH recreational activities and special events visit www.conservationhalton.ca/events.
