The Maple Syrup Festival has selected Max Augustine to be Grand Marshal of the 2016 Maple Syrup Festival Parade to be presented Sunday, April 24th, 2:30 pm in ‘downtown’ Shepherd. The theme of this year’s parade, Our Heritage, celebrates the 58 years the Shepherd Maple Syrup Festival has taken place on the last full weekend in April. It is very appropriate then that Max Augustine, a founding member of the Festival, leads the parade.
