An annual weekend festival has some hardy folks tapping into spring on the Northwest Side, even if temperatures aren't really cooperating.

It's the 30th annual North Park Nature Center's Maple Syrup Festival.

Visitors of all ages got to learn the syrup-making process, including how to tap maple trees, boil the sap and, of course, taste the syrup when it's done.

Admission to the event was free.
