ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind.--- The bitter cold didn't stop families from heading outside to enjoy a sweet Sunday at Bendix Woods County Park.
They celebrated what would normally be the end of the maple syrup season with Sugar Camp Days this weekend.
Because of the cold winter we have had syrup season was pushed back and it is really just beginning.
Families got a chance to sample goodies during the event such as maple sugar and cotton candy.
There were also historical interpreters on hand giving demonstrations.
“We feel like the process of making maple syrup is kind of a unique connection between people and the natural world,” said Anna Farrough, a park interpreter. “Anytime we can connect people with the outdoors and the natural world, that's what we want to do.”
The event wrapped up at three and helped raise money for the St. Joe County Parks Department.
