AMHERST, N.Y. (WKBW) — They'll boil it down for you: the history of maple syrup in Western New York and gallons of sap.

It takes about 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of syrup and that's just one of many facts you'll learn on the "Maple Trail"! Your family can tour the Buffalo Niagara Heritage Village and experience hands-on, interactive stops where you can tap trees, watch the cooking of maple syrup and do a taste test!

You can also top your pancakes with fresh syrup at the lumberjack buffet breakfast. Pancakes, eggs, sausage and fruit will be served with a number of included beverages. If breakfast isn't for you, KTB's Bucking Pig BBQ will serve maple BBQ and New York Beer Project will serve a maple porter.

Live music from The Brothers Blue will be played from noon until 3 p.m.

The event runs both Saturday and Sunday March 30 and 31st from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets are available at the door for $14 for adults and $12 for children including breakfast. For the event only, tickets are $8 each. You can find them here.
