What does real maple syrup taste like?  You can try it out on a stack of pancakes at the annual Pancakes in the Park breakfast on Saturday, March 13 at Pattison Park, located on state Route 50 in Stonelick Township.

The event runs from 8:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. and has some fun activities for the whole family to do, to work off the delicious breakfast at the park lodge.

“We will have hands-on activities to show you how to tap a tree and there will be demonstrations of how Native Americans and pioneers boiled down the tree sap to make syrup,” said Clermont Parks Chief Naturalist Keith Robinson.  “We will have naturalist-led hikes in the park to help you identify various trees and wildlife.”

Robinson also invites citizens to sponsor a bucket used to collect sap.  "For $25, you can have your name on a bucket that is attached to a tree, two free tickets to the pancake breakfast, and a bottle of pure maple syrup, made right here at Pattison Park."  This year, the syrup is being cooked in a new evaporator, purchased by the Pattison Foundation.

Tickets for the Pancakes in the Park breakfast cost $5 for adults, $4 for seniors, $2 for children, with those ages 5 and under free.

The tickets are available at the park on the day of the event, or by calling (513) 732-2977.
