    Maple festival celebrates sweet crop in Vermont

    Vermont is celebrating its signature crop at the maple festival in St. Albans. The 47th annual event started Friday and runs through Sunday with a parade, pancake breakfast, maple cooking demonstrations, music, and the annual sap run from Swanton to St. Albans. Vermont is the country’s largest producer of maple syrup. The state produced more than 1 million gallons in 2011, but less in 2012 because warmer weather cut the season short.
