Pick #1: Sugar Shack Saturdays at Appleton Farms
Spring is coming and the sap is running! Experience the time-honored tradition of maple sugaring with Sugar Shack Saturdays at Appleton Farms. Spend the day with us and see how we turn sap into sweet syrup. Start by getting creative with some maple themed crafts in the Appleton Old House then get outside and explore our very own sugar shack! Learn how we tap our trees every spring, see the evaporator in action, and taste the freshly made syrup. We will end back inside with a farm snack, including Appleton Farms cheese, apple slices, and homemade maple ice cream while we read a story about maple sugaring! Recommended for ages 8 and under but everyone is welcome! This program meets at the Visitor Center.
Please be aware there are two sessions for this program from 10-11:30 and 1:30-3:00. Space is limited. Registration is by the family- if you have 6 or more in your family, please register 2 families. Crafts and snacks included and we want to have enough for all.
Pick #2: Ice Castles!
I can’t wait to get up there! I’m hoping that it is still open after hockey season ends…

Pick #3: The South Asian Showdown 2016
I’ve never even heard about this, but if your kids are into dance…how fun!
This and a great dinner in the city…seems like an interesting win for the family.
Thank you for your interest in the South Asian Showdown competition. After the huge success of the last 6 year’s competitions, we look forward to bringing you an even better show this year! Teams from all over North America & Canada will compete to be crowned the Showdown champion.
The concept of Showdown is to put the best Fusion, and Bollywood/Hindi-Film teams up against one another and let the judges have the unenviable task of selecting the best team of the night. Fusion is a combination of any dance style set to a majority of indian music. It is a very creative and unique form of dance incorporating many others forms of dance. Bollywood/Hindi-Film style of dance is based on the Bollywood film style of dance featuring expression, theme and storyline. It is a mini-story on stage set to indian music. This will be an unbelievable show to watch and an unparalleled experience for all the teams to be involved in!
This year’s competition will be taking place on Saturday, February 27th, 2016 @ the John Hancock Hall in the heart of Boston.
