Maple syrup, traditional dance, and the Scottish games round out a diverse season of festivals

Now that spring has sprung, more and more people are going to want to get out of the house and enjoy all that Mt. Pleasant has to offer. And if the 100 Days of Spring list released by the Mt. Pleasant Area Convention & Visitors Bureau tells us anything, it’s that there a whole lot to do around the region this season.
