You refer to spring and summer as Festival Season, right?  Ok good, glad we got that out of the way because this week is the first of many local festivals that we will highlighted here on Matchbox Downtown.

And it begins…

56th Annual Highland Maple Festival

March 8-9 & 15-16, 2014

Come for the donuts.  Stay for the pancakes.

Each year, Virginia’s “Little Switzerland” located in Highland County celebrates all things maple.  This includes everything from pancakes and donuts to maple glazed chicken and sugar tours.  The festival centers around Monterey, Virginia as its hub.  There you can find everything from the famous donuts to local crafts and even, wait for it, a place where you can take a picture with sheep.  Real live sheep!  If this doesn’t sound like the coolest day trip ever, you might want to head to the doctor because something is wrong with you.
