Lauren and Charlotte are off for March Break and instead of swishing around in snow pants, they're jacketless and enjoying the warmth at Black Creek Pioneer Village.

"Well by far, this is the most beautiful March Break we've ever experienced," says Karell Pfeiffer, Special Events Coordinator at Black Creek Pioneer Village. "Usually we have a lot of snow, then it's rain, but today we're out here in t-shirts and it's the middle of March."

Black Creek Pioneer Village is Toronto's largest outdoor living history experience. It's a place where visitors can step into the mid-1800's and experience life as it was in early Ontario.

"This week we have great wagon rides going on, we have live entertainment, the entire village is open this year for the first time. You can come out learn how spinning is done, discover our sheep, learn about horses, all kinds of fabulous activities," says Pfeiffer.

The maple syrup production is in full swing as well.

"Thanks to the beautiful weather earlier in the year, we were able to start tapping a lot earlier this year. So we've already been tapping since about early February."

Pfeiffer adds that the sap may stop running a little early this season, but people are enjoying the syrup while they can.
