Marathon Taps into Their Sweet Recourses

For Dean Delavan, it's a tradition that he's been involved with for years.

"We've made syrup forever and we've been involved at the Maple Festival for at least 15-20 years," said  Dean Delavan, local maple producer.

Those who worked and attended the festival were able to enjoy the maple, eating and drinking it, in many different forms.

"Elephant ears," said Mathew Jenney, Marathon Resident.

"Pulled pork, pulled chicken, maple coffee, maple tea, maple sweet buns and new this year we have maple water," said Yvonne Moore, Marathon Historical Society Member.

Delevan says he enjoys being able to provide the community with his maple cream and candy.

"It's great to have people like the product that you make," said Dean Delevan.

And hundreds like Delevan worked long hours in preparation for those products to be ready for today's festival.

"Two or three days ahead of time they start getting the food ready and it's a lot of work," said Yvonne Moore.

But all that hard work is what makes those who attend the event every year coming back.

"Just being able to see everybody enjoy everything. It's a nice local event," said Mathew Jenney, Marathon Resident.

Only 6.4 percent of Americans eat maple syrup regularly. But it's safe to say those numbers peaked today in Marathon. At the Maple Festival, Vince Briga, FOX 40 HD News.
