Governor Janet Mills today, March 6, tapped the Blaine House Maple Tree ahead of the 40th annual Maine Maple Sunday Weekend, coming up March 25-26.
The annual tradition promotes an industry that is estimated to generate $55.6 million in economy activity and support more than 800 full and part-time jobs across the state.
Maine’s Maple Sunday Weekend at Maine Maple Producers Association sugar shacks around the state.
Maine Maple Sunday Weekend features dozens of Maine Maple Producers opening their sugar house doors for visitors to learn about Maine maple syrup and how it is made. Maple Sunday Weekend is a free family event with each producer setting their own hours and activities, including sap boiling demonstrations, sugar woods tours, live music, horse-drawn hayrides, maple products for sale, and maple product samples.
