TROY, BRADFORD COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — Some of us love maple but there are others who really love maple. It’s safe to say you’ll find plenty of the latter this weekend in Bradford County.
One of the many things you can do at the Endless Mountains Maple Festival is go inside the Wienermobile.
“It has been a really hard year for a lot of people, so just being able to make people smile, there is nothing quite like it,” Rachel Aul, known as “Relish Rachel” of the Oscar Meyer Wienermobile, said.
For 39 years, the maple festival mission has always been to educate folks on maple production throughout Pennsylvania’s northern tier.
“It comes very naturally from our local resources, and it doesn’t hurt the plant either,” Endless Mountains Maple ambassador Amanda Iveson said.
Besides the unlimited maple pancakes all you can eat breakfast, the festival features much more including craft vendors, farm animal judging, and carnival rides.
“I went on this ride. It was like a big Ferris Wheel, it’s like two seats…So my mom went on and we went around,” Dominic Bostwick of Elmira, New York said.
Once your belly is full and after the hourly monster truck shows, you can sit back and relax
while listening to live music including from former American Idol contestant and Sullivan County native Aaron Kelly.
“Honestly you can tell that people needed an outlet and what better way than a festival with live music,” Kelly said.
“There’s a lot of stuff to check out,” Bostwick said.
The festival continues Sunday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. One of the highlights, a demolition derby, is scheduled for noon.
