CEDAR RAPIDS – The Maple Syrup Festival has been a tradition at the Indian Creek Nature Center for more than 30 years.
This year, they’re trying something new. The date has been pushed back to later in March, to coincide with the end of the syruping season and in the hopes that the weather will be more cooperative than in some years past.
The festival, featuring a pancake breakfast with real maple syrup, is set for Saturday, March 21 and Sunday, March 22, 2015, from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. each day.
