The Pennsylvania Maple Festival (C/S024)When's the last time you attended the Maple Festival in Meyersdale, Pennsylvania? Now is your chance to rediscover a sweet taste of Americana at its finest. According to the official website of the Pennsylvania Maple Festival, it was a group of Meyersdale merchants chewing the fat around a potbellied stove 60 years ago that inspired the festival that we know and enjoy today. On a cold winter night in 1947, a group of men - already planning some kind of hometown celebration - heard a radio broadcast featuring singer Kate Smith mention she was craving maple syrup. The merchants sent her a sample of Pennsylvania syrup and the singer pronounced the confection to be the "sweetest she had ever tasted." That was all it took to launch a festival the next year and since then, this charming event has truly succeeded in putting Meyersdale on the map.
