On Saturday, June 27, Wellington Farm USA will present their annual Sticky Buns Day. Sticky Buns Day is a rather odd name for a festival but it has been going on for 24 years at the living history farm near Grayling. It all started as a joke. The park was in its’ infancy, festivals had not really been a part of their presentation. The staff was meeting to discuss possible special events which could be presented and at the same time were enjoying homemade sticky buns. As one member was munching his tasty treat he said, sort of as a ‘smart remark’, “Lets make sticky buns in the Summer Kitchen and call it a festival. That’s how it all got started, 24 years ago. Now, Sticky Buns Day is one of the most popular events held annually at the historical park. And, true to its’ originality, sticky buns are made from scratch, the old fashioned way, in the Summer Kitchen, baked in a wood fired cook stove.
