The annual maple syrup festival in Alvinston is back this year.

The family-friendly event was not held the past two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The St. Clair Region Conservation Authority said the two-day A.W. Campbell Maple Syrup Festival will include guided hikes, horse-drawn wagon rides and information booths.

Residents will also be able to get a first-hand look of historical maple syrup production methods.

In the past, the festival attracted between 800 to 1,000 visitors to the Shiloh Line Conservation Authority.

Admission is $10 per vehicle.

The event is on Saturday, March 18 and Sunday, March 19 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
