    ST. ALBANS — Vermont is celebrating its signature crop at the maple festival in St. Albans.

    The 47th annual event started Friday and runs through today with a parade, pancake breakfast, maple cooking demonstrations, music and the annual sap run from Swanton to St. Albans.

    There is also a maple contest, talent show, antiques, exhibits, and a craft and specialty foods show.

    Vermont is the nation’s largest producer of maple syrup. The state produced more than 1 million gallons in 2011, but less in 2012 because warmer weather cut the season short.
