Sugar Day is a family-friendly festival featuring handmade arts and crafts, local musicians, open-hearth cooking, children's activities and demonstrations appropriate to the era.  The main focus of the day is the actual process of sugar making, which is done in a reproduction 1840’s sugar mill.  We are seeking a poster that reflects this image.
