The most stereotypical thing about Canada is that in the winters we literally pour maple syrup on snow and eat it. It's called maple taffy and it's delicious.
Normally to get some good, real maple taffy you have to trek out into a sugar bush usually in the middle of nowhere but this winter you can stuff your face with as much maple taffy as you want at this massive maple sugar festival coming to Toronto.
On the first weekend of March break, March 9th and 10th, Sugar Shack TO is going to be coming back to the city for their fourth annual sugar shack event. This year it's going to be bigger and better than ever. The event will be held at Sherbourne Common near Toronto's waterfront, by Lower Sherbourne and Queens Quay.
On top of the sugar shacks serving up fresh and real maple taffy, there is a lot more to the festival too. There's going to be an entire winter market, live music, a specialty winter bar with spiked hot chocolate, and a whole lot of winter activities.
The festival also features interactive activities, live shows like chainsaw ice carving, and special games for kids. The newest thing to come to the maple festival is a massive maple-themed obstacle course called Maple Rush.
The festival, which is outdoors, also has warming stations, meaning even the cold weather is no excuse to not hit up Toronto's official sugar shack.
The two-day festival takes place down at Toronto's waterfront at Sherborne Common. It runs from March 9th to March 10th, and only from 11 AM - 5 PM on both days. General admission for the festival is free.

Some key issues that this team will be focused on include responding to large events or gatherings in parks across the city and conducting business inspections. If officers notice a crowd in parks, they will be dispersing people as quickly as possible, the City states.
On top of this, the team will also be working towards prohibiting people from bringing "large amounts of alcohol" into public places.
Bublé, who joined two minutes into the call, jokingly suggested that the town should replace its water supply with Bubly, a sparkling water he has endorsed in the past.
However, it seems that the township wasn't buying Bublé's latest sale pitch. "Of course, I told Mr. Bublé that we are very proud of our high-quality municipal water and we have absolutely no plans to replace it with sparkling water. Our water in North Grenville is some of the best in Eastern Ontario," Peckford said in a press release.
